I was mainly working on the country list to integrate 5 spreadsheets from Census Tablebuilder into this bigger table. I finished over the half of table, but I had encountered some difficulty. For two columns: CD_ANC1P(Ancestry 1st Response); CD_LANP(Language Spoken at Home), data is difficult to integrate into the country list, because data of CD_ANC1P and CD_LANP cannot be accurately allocated on the country level. Fortunately, I got the instruction from Natalia and contacted previous intern Maria since she was having similar task. Hope I could find an efficient way to solve this problem and finish this country list very soon. In addition, another good news for this week is that, the postcode atlas table will reduce the coverage of postcodes only to Melbourne area (vs the whole VIC state).
This week I refined 5 spreadsheets from Census Tablebuilder into country level with more specific level4 digits. On Friday, I had a meeting with Natalia to talk about my internship's next task, which is to integrate those five spreadsheets above into one bigger table of a country list. Also, another task for me is to integrate other 24 spreadsheets from Census Tablebuilder into one postcode level spreadsheet. I will manage to finish the country list first by the end of next week and also try to finish the postcode sheet next week.
After meeting with Natalia, this week I started to generate various tables based on Victoria postal areas in four different categories: Cultural Diversity; Employment, Income and Education; Selected Dwelling Characteristics；Selected Family Characteristics. So far, we've got the Neighborhood Atlas sheet; the Postcodes Atlas sheet, and this week's other 29 sheets with population and housing information from Census TableBuilder. I am excited about the analysis stage of all these data later, hope these sheets can be very contributive to the next step.
