The most detailed map of Australian population density ever

The most detailed map of Australian population density ever

The Australian Bureau of Statistics has released what is probably the most detailed geographic view of population density in Australia. The dataset shows the population per square kilometre from the 2011 census, the first time a grid has been used for these figures. This gives a significant increase in detail, particularly in regional areas, over previous approaches.Here I’ve converted their data to an interactive map so you can see specific areas in greater detail.
