Explore national polling data - Data Journalism

See how federal polling numbers have changed over time and their correlations with political events.

Small Multiples designed and built another key component to the Australian Financial Review's DATA.AFR.COM. The visualisations draw on a database of the latest AFR/Nielsen, Essential, Galaxy, Newspoll, ReachTEL and Roy Morgan national polling data. Audiences are able to discover interesting trends from the data and see how significant national events have influenced public opinion and voting intentions.

This project is a on-going collaboration with data journalist Edmund Tadros and the team of journalists and researchers at the Australian Financial Review.
