Your research paper will focus on communities, occupations, and income levels. You will use real social science data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics to conduct a small study of the distribution of occupations and average pay levels in three or more communities.

No papers can be accepted after Monday 10 September; if your paper is later than this for ANY reason whatsoever you will have to complete a substitute assignment.

Do a similar comparison for suburbs of Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth
Compare the central postcodes of state capital cities
Compare adjoining postcodes of your own home area
