Suburban Trends compares and contrasts Australian suburbs. Graphical indicators reveal different aspects of each suburb, including socio-economic standing, education levels and perceived safety levels. For suburbs within NSW, crime trends are also available. Additionally, a Web Services API allows this data to be easily reused.
Judges' Comments: A mashup of different types of crime and census data that allows you to compare and contrast suburbs by a range of economic, education, safety and socio-economic indicators. The judges thought the ability to compare suburbs visually combined with the selective choice of statistics was excellent especially in a field dominated by many entries using similar datasets.
