DATA CLASSIFICATION DESCRIPTION
DATA CLASSIFICATION

Data Classification is a functionality that classifies data using Equal Interval, Quantile, Natural Breaks or Location Quotient (LQ) approaches for making graduated colour or symbol maps.

The equal interval classifies the features into equally divided ranges of attributes values. In the quantile classification, each class contains approximately the same number of features. The natural breaks approach is a median based natural breaks classification that optimises attribute similarity.

The LQ approach pre-determines the classes of LQ data into several groups such as:

0.49 and below (51% or more below national benchmark),

0.50 - 0.79 (21 to 50% below national benchmark),

0.80 - 0.89 (11 to 20% below national benchmark),

0.90 - 0.94 (6 to 10% below national benchmark),

0.95 - 0.99 (1 to 5% below national benchmark),

1.00 - 1.05 (0 to 5% above national benchmark),

1.06 - 1.10 (6 to 10% above national benchmark),

1.11 - 1.20 (11 to 20% above national benchmark),

1.21 - 1.50 (21 to 50% above national benchmark), and

1.51 and above (51% or more above national benchmark).

The classification functionality is useful to show the pattern and benchmark of voting outcomes.

Census 2006 - PBC Voting 2010 - PBC

CATEGORY DESCRIPTION
TITLE: Variables derived from 2006 Census of Population & Housing and variables from voting results at Polling Booth Catchment (PBC) level for 2010 Australian Federal Election
CUSTODIAN: PBCs and variables derived by GPEM (QCPR), University of Queensland
ABSTRACT:

Digital boundaries of this dataset are for Polling Booth Catchment (PBC). Polling booths have been geocoded. The number of primary votes cast for each candidate standing for the House of Representatives at the 2010 federal election was provided by the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC). That raw data of polling booths was rearranged to create a table which gives the number and the proportion of total votes cast for each political party for each electoral division in each state/territory. Those tables were then joined to the geocoded polling booths for all electoral divisions in Australia. Political parties include Coalition parties, Labor party, Greens party, Family First Party, and Independent. Coalition two party preferred and Labor two party preferred are included in the voting dataset. Location quotients (LQs) are calculated by taking the ratio of the percentage of primary votes and the percentage of two party preferred votes at each polling booth for a political party with national benchmark percentage of the vote for that party. The 2010 federal electoral division boundaries were downloaded from AEC website.

Census collection districts (CCDs) were spatially allocated to a nearest polling booth location to form polling booth catchments in each of the 150 electoral divisions. The 150 booth catchments layers were then merged into one Australia booth catchments layer. The demographic and socio-economic characteristics of the population living within the polling booth catchments were measured using the following 48 variables:

% 0-17 years children and youth

% 18-22 years first voters
