ABS Animated Population Pyramid
On this page
Here's an example of a redesign of the ABS Animated Population Pyramid using Adobe Flex.
- an adaptation to newer web technologies for data visualisation, using Flex instead of SVG.
- improved user interaction including a drop down list allowing the user to view not only Australia's population, but a breakdown of each state and territory. Currently the ABS Animated Population Pyramids are displayed as nine separate graphs, whereas the redesign manages to combine the nine graphs into one dynamic graph.
Click and drag the Slider Bar below the graph to watch the population graph move, you can also use the 'play' and 'stop' buttons. Hovering your mouse over the graph will reveal data from the area highlighted. Use the drop down box to select data from either the national or state and territory level.
