a sum of all costs according to attributable major political unit (States and Territories) b sum of highly reliable costs only by political unit c relationship between the number of database entries and all cost estimates by political unit – this also includes the estimate for ‘Australia’ (‘AUS’; not directly attributable to a single State or Territory). The power-law relationship is also shown (evidence ratio = 18013, R2 = 0.90) d relationship between number of database entries for highly reliable costs estimates by political unit (evidence ratio = 38550, R2 = 0.91). Abbreviations: ACT = Australian Capital Territory; NSW = New South Wales; NT = Northern Territory; QLD = Queensland; SA = South Australia; TAS = Tasmania; VIC = Victoria; WA = Western Australia; AUS = nation-wide or not specified to which political unit the estimate belongs. ‘Australian territory’ refers to regions outside State/Territory jurisdication (e.g. Christmas Island, Lord Howe Island).
