The Pilbara came under the spotlight in May as Client Liaison’s Hayley Priestley and Nellie Gaynor joined forces with Census Director Mike Scott and WA Assistant Indigenous Engagement Manager Murray Johnston, to help promote the Pilbara Spotlight website and the 2011 Census.
Mike and Murray’s focus was on working within the community to ensure that the Census 2011 is a success. They visited community and business stakeholders within the Pilbara to discuss issues that may arise in 2011.
Hayley’s presentation on the Spotlight website highlighted how small area data can help businesses and communities. Along with Mike she emphasised the need for a successful Census to ensure that products like the Pilbara Spotlight website remain relevant. http://www.regionalspotlights.com.au/
