PRESENT USE OF DATA VISUALISATION BY THE ABS

Currently the standard or most common form of graphical displays used by the ABS on its website and within publications are static two-dimensional black and white images. These generally take the form of column, line or dot graphs and are developed using internal software packages. All ABS published graphs are subject to publishing guidelines.


The ABS has recently introduced a number of new data visualisation techniques to its website. These include:


- Animated Population Pyramids

- National Regional Profiles - By Location Map

- Mapstats

- Microdata Usage Graphs (Dashboard)
