This technique for data visualisation has been applied using a variety of chart types to the recently released estimates from Labour Force and Other Characteristics of Families (cat no. 6224.0.55.001). Refer to this publication for an overview of the data being presented.
An animated graph or chart is particularly useful in visualising data across multiple dimensions. While a static graph is typically limited to two dimensions (x versus y), an animated graph allows for data to visually flow across a third dimension while still retaining a simplistic two dimensional view.
This is currently proof of concept work. Your feedback on this development will determine it's success.
