How was Australia feeling?

After logging 19,203 feelings over 7 days from 3,610 participants, the How Is Australia Feeling application was able to produce a mountain of emotions and insights. The data was processed by SPUR, and displayed in an interactive map.

The insights were gained as emotions where contrasted against location and activity. Commuter feelings where ranked by city. Cities happiness were compared by activity that supported that emotion. The feelings at work compared to Monday to Friday, morning to evening where ordered to show insight on cities with worrying or pleasing patterns.

The app was widely acknowledged during its testing week, promoted by ABC and many other sites and agencies promoting mental health awareness. The full data analysis can be seen here
