Australia’s Interactive Census Infographic
Nice way to get people to understand what a Census is. On Tuesday August 9, Australia is having a Census. But what does a Census really mean for Australia, and why is it important? I just found out that Australia’s population is only 0.3% of the world’s population… I feel small now
The Australian Bureau of Statistics takes some of the data from the last Census – conducted in 2006 – and turns it into a simple interactive movie, to show just a few of the interesting things that the Census can tell us about Australia’s people and population.
Once you’ve explored it, you can create an infographic of your own – a personalised snapshot of your own numbers that you can share with friends.
