By now a lot of Australians have already completed their Census form. It is estimated that around one third of Australians will complete the 60 questions online. This year marks 100 years since census data began collection in Australia and occurs every 5 years. While some have questioned the validity of spending $440Million on surveying the nation, it’s hard to ignore the data can be useful.
ABC News have created a very interesting way of presenting past census data. Using interactive graphs, it allows you to compare population numbers, religious affiliation, life expectancy, employee earnings and more. Futurists are also catered for with projections about future numbers, for instance, its estimated that by 2101 Australia will have a population of 44.7 Million of which 25% will be over 65.
