Innovative presentation of economic data

The prize will be awarded to the most innovative presentation of 'headline' economic data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

The ABS produces a number of monthly and quarterly statistical releases measuring the Australian Economy. These releases impact policy, financial markets and the community and are always in high demand. By 'headline' data we mean the figures that summarise and tell the story of these releases; the key indicators or totals that matter most to the public.

Your challenge is to present these figures in a way that is interesting, engaging and informative for your chosen target audience.

Eligibility Criteria
  • Must use data from at least one ABS monthly or quarterly datasets (for example: Consumer Price Index, Labour Force, Retail Trade)
  • Must dynamically call ABS.Stat Web Services.
  • Documentation on using the services available in the Web Services User Guide.
  • Bonus points for also using data from other government or non-government sources
