The Australian Bureau of Statistics engaged Mnet to release a brand new Android app. The app features easy access to a full range of official statistics and material design. Statistics Include:

  • Key Economic Indicators – Australia’s key economic indicators at your fingertips, updated as soon as new data becomes available with a notification sent straight to your device. This includes data such as the Consumer Price Index (CPI) and Gross Domestic Product (GDP) which you can easily edit based on your preferences.
  • Census Data – View and compare 2011 Census characteristics relating to people, families, and dwellings, for both postal areas and Commonwealth Electoral Divisions.
  • Population Clock – Quickly find out the current population projection for Australia – updated in real time.

Michael Beahan, the ABS’ Program Manager of Dissemination said of the app, “the Android app embraces a new, user-friendly design, making it easy and convenient for users to engage with our statistics on the go.”

The ABS previously had an iOS application but enlisted Mnet to incorporate feedback and develop a ‘streamlined and accessible application with new features that will enhance the user experience’.

So far, the app has seen amazing reviews. Ausdroid even says, “it’s literally one of the best apps we’ve seen from the Australian Government. Well done ABS.”
