Data Story

The data used by our team comes from https://discover.data.vic.gov.au/. We consumed the data in excel format and used Tableau to visualize the data. A major issue that we faced was not many datasets covered the COVID period. We had to gather insights about COVID impact using job seeker, census, population density, road accidents, and job keeper data. A further use case was created that covered the on how to recover from the economic and social impact of COVID. You can also click on the below URL to know more about how we met our challenges.
