Statistical Me gives an online representation of how unique users are based on Australian government census data. The data, pulled from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), is also accessible through the Statistical Me API. The data upon which the statistics are pulled include gender, age, marital status, number of children, income, vehicles, rent/mortgage, and more. Users roll virtual dice until they uncover a profile that fits the user. Based on the results, users receive a graphical and numerical representation of their uniqueness as compared to fellow Aussies.
