    Download the relevant ABS 2016 census data for the region in which your coffee shop is located, eg. Greater Brisbane. Use this data to justify your marketing strategy by applying the various analytical techniques you have studied in this unit. Ensure you incorporate a statistical analysis of demographic data (using the various techniques studied in class) that supports your marketing strategy in the area you will be establishing your coffee shop. Please note you do not need to conduct Hypothesis Testing.Such data may include but is not limited to:

    • Age
    • Household size
    • Personal Income
    • Family Income
    • Country of Birth
    • Labour Force Status

    When you are thinking about which data to use, think about the type of customer you are wanting to attract to your coffee shop. For example, are you wanting to attract families with children, couples, hipsters, or everyone? Is your coffee shop high-end or budget? If you are wanting to attract families with children, you may wish to explore the data on household size. If your coffee shop is high-end, you may wish to explore the data on family income, personal income or labour-force status.

    You may also work backwards and look at the data for your suburb and surrounding suburbs, and then fine tune your coffee shop to suit that specific area. Remember, you are allowed to make changes to your original business analysis report you wrote for Assessment 2. That is what good research is about.

    Also, try looking at the data of all the suburbs within a 5km radius of your coffee shop (the catchment area). Then use such data to find the averages of your variables and draw graphs of all of those suburbs combined. Then related these findings back to the viability of your enterprise and the customers you are trying to appeal to in its current planned location.

    Please note too, as well as the Excel data provided below, the ABS 2016 Censuswebsite incorporates a wealth of data which can even drill down to individual suburbs. I would highly recommend accessing this site and exploring the various tools available which will aid in writing your report.
