Migrants sea change into Victoria will have well-informed data-driven insights to help them relocate or immigrate.
Orana originally came from First People of Australia Wiradjuri language meaning "welcome". Embrace multiculturalism!

Data Story

Data inquiries include: Do immigrants lives longer than people who were born locally? What are the factors impacting quality of lifes? Why does one suburb tend to have a higher number of healthier and happier people than others? Does community belonging have significant impact on an immigrant well-being? E.g. Will Italian immigrant be happier living in Carlton when there are plenty of Italian food and strong Italian community? Will factors like income and education level play a role in age longevity?
