What Does a Census Really Mean, and Why is It Important?

The Australian Bureau of Statistics put together an interactive movie called Spotlight, which helps its citizens understand the data a little better.

Spotlight takes some of the data from the last Census - conducted in 2006 - and turns it into a simple interactive movie, to show just a few of the interesting things that the Census can tell us about Australia's people and population.

Once you've explored Spotlight, you can create an infographic of your own (above is mine) - a personalised snapshot of your own (only for Australians) numbers that you can share with friends.
