Demographic changes shown in online graphs
Peninsula News has produced an online graphical comparison of demographic changes over five years on the Peninsula.
Local data visualisation analyst Mr Craig Dewar used census data from 2016 to make the comparison with Census data from 2021.
The graphs show figures from the Level 2 statistical areas of Umina and Woy Woy, as well as NSW and national averages.
Together, the Umina and Woy Woy statistical areas comprise the Peninsula to its road boundaries at The Rip Bridge, the Spike Milligan Bridge and Staples Lookout on Woy Woy Rd.
Mr Dewar, a Peninsula News volunteer, has produced two series of graphs - one with "guided insights" from the page three report in the last issue (549) of Peninsula News, and another series allowing a free form exploration of the data.
Separately, Mr Dewar has also produced a series of online rainfall visualisations, based on rainfall figures recorded by another volunteer Mr Jim Morrison of Umina.
The census graphs are available at https://t.ly/66sH or https://tinyurl.com/PNCensus.
The rainfall visualisations are available at https://bit.ly/PNweather.
