The final day 5 dashboard. This time I got the opportunity to explore and analyse Australian Influenza data across all age groups for both male and female.

In general, Australians give greater importance to health and well-being. However, it is interesting to know that over the past few years cases of influenza flu have gone up. In fact, in 2017 the number of flu cases reported were higher than ever.

To further look at the gaps in the data, I have prepared a dashboard using Tableau on Australia’s Influenza Surveillance from the year 2008-2017.

The main demographics for this have been male and female, and indigenous/non-indigenous.

It is interesting to know that children under the age of 9 years of age are most affected by the influenza flu, indicating that this age group is not getting proper vaccination or immunisation.

Clearly, this needs to be advertised more in schools as well be parents need to be more aware to get their kids immunised timely.

Another key factor to notice and be mindful is, maximum cases reported were in the month of July – September. This is a consistent trend from the year 2008-2017, suggesting being more careful during these months.
