The ‘Visualising the Evidence’ mapping series is a free tool that allows you to choose the data you want to see for your community. You can use the tool to find:
- the location of schools, early childhood services, parks and public transport
- socioeconomic measures, such as Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas (SEIFA)
- proportion of children who are read to regularly
- household income
- immunisation and/or breastfeeding rates.
The Visualising the Evidence mapping series has been developed with communities for communities. It brings together public data on children and families and allows you to look at how children are faring in the context of the community they’re growing up in.
You can view both outcome data, such as the AEDC, and data on community services, such as the location of maternal and child health services. By visualising the existing infrastructure within your community, you can gain insight into the gaps in services and facilities across local areas.
