The Australian age/sex datasets supplied by eSpatial where obtained from the Australian Bureau of Statistics 2011 Australian Census. The Australian age/sex datasets provided by eSpatial can be used to examine and analyse the Australian population in relation to different age and sex categories. These datasets can be used in conjunction with the eSpatial mapping software to create reports which investigate the age and sex structure of Australia. Reports can be generated which examine the age structure of the total population, male population and female population within Australia at the Australian State, State Electoral Division and Local Government Area geographical levels. You can also link and connect your own personal or commercial data to these datasets. The age and sex structure of Australia can also therefore be analysed in relation to your own data. Below is an example of a simple Australian age/sex report. This report was designed by eSpatial to illustrate how to get the most out of the eSpatial mapping software and the data it provides.
A simple report was created using the eSpatial mapping software and the Age/Sex (Australian States) dataset it provides. This report examines the Australian population in relation to people aged between 30 and 39. The Australian age/sex datasets provided by eSpatial offer a number of different age categories which can be reported on but for the purpose of this report the 30 to 39 age category was chosen as an example.
Australian states are colored and categorized according to the number of people aged between 30 and 39 within them. The graduated color scheme adopted by eSpatial mapping software allows for a quick and easy analysis of this data. It is evident from the map that yellow colored states (e.g. Northern Territory) have the lowest number of people aged between 30 to 39 living within them, less than 50,000 people while red colored states (e.g. New South Wales) have the most people in this age category with more than 600,000 people. It is also therefore easy to surmise that the amount of people aged between 30 and 39 living in the light orange (e.g. Tasmania), orange (e.g. South Australia) and dark orange (e.g. Queensland) colored states lies somewhere between 50,000 and 600,000 people respectively.
