CensusTest takes census data from the Canadian government and lets users answer simple questions to see how they compare to other Canadians.

It is implemented in Python as a Django web application which uses PostgreSQL as a database.

  • mysite is the project folder which defines the settings for CensusTest and how the server is run
  • censustest is the application folder which contains the bulk of the code for CensusTest including HTML templates, business logic and database models

It also uses the chartit Django package which uses Highcharts to create charts.

CensusTest gets it's data from the 2011 Census Profile and the 2011 National Household Survey Profile which are publicly available from the Canadian government on the Statistics Canada website.
