Project Description

Re-engergising our city center


Our project has a data analysis focus, we have analyzed various data sources to better understand both the immediate impact on the job market and local industry. Using this analysis we present some potential ideas that can be taken onboard to help the broader community recover from this global disaster.

Data analysis

Employment - Job Keeper affected areas

From an employment perspective using the Job Keeper, Job Seeker and taxation datasets to identify the worst affected areas.

Local Economy and community demographics

We then look deeper into the local economy and local demographics of the Liverpool City Council area. Census data was useful in understanding the ethnic background of the community as well as the age distribution of the community.

Crime analysis

Using a crime dataset we were able to put together some visualisations on the levels of crime in the Liverpool area as compared to the NSW average. These visualisations support improving the perception about crime in the area.
