Project Info

Project Description


J.A.G (Job And Growth) is a project designed around making sense of employment and higher education data. The project creates a visualisation in the form of an infographic for the viewer based on the selected State\Territory and\or industry.


Data Story


Our project used datasets from government databases to do with population, employment and higher education. Some of the data required some extrapolation and format conversion to enable us to correlate datasets together. In one case, we needed to create a map between the industry codes used in one table to those used in another in order to build the correlation.

Population Data - July 2018

Description of Use: This data is being used as a comparison to people in Industry.

Data Set

Employment Projections by Industry - Five Years to May 2022

Description of Use: This was uses so we could get a five year projection of what is predicted for 2022 that can be compered to people in industry today.

Data Set

Employment by Industry Data - May 2018

Description of Use: This data set was used as a base level of people in each industry across Australia. This data allowed us to mediate, compare and extrapolate information with this and the other data sets available to provide useful information to the user.

Data Set

Challenges

Bounty: Making open data more open.

How can open data be presented on search.data.gov.au to make it easier and friendlier to use? Does this mean making it more similar to using standard search engines, like Google, or something else entirely?

Go to Challenge | 34 teams have entered this challenge across all checkpoints that have passed.

More than apps and maps: help government decide with data

How can we combine data to help government make their big and small decisions? Government makes decisions every day—with long term consequences such as the location of a school, or on a small scale such as the rostering of helpdesk staff.
