Australian Marraige Law data by electoral region

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) published their data set of the 2017 Australian Marriage Law vote today in Excel format.

So far I’ve only seen the results of this election by State. Personally I find the results by federal electoral region more interesting.

Thankfully importing ABS data and Australian Electoral Commision(AEC) map files into Tableau is straight forward so we can easily analysis the YES vote per federal electoral

Here is the Australia wide view - you can zoom in to a specifc area to get more details, further below are the zoomed in Melbourne and Sydney maps for comparison.




In my next post I’ll got into the details of how to create these maps in Tableau with ABS and AEC data
