Australian Statistics on Medicines 2011

Client: Australian Department of Health and Ageing

Completion date: 2011

Project notes: A 320 page, two-colour, B5 format report

This hefty report, published on an annual basis, is a valuable set of statistics on the use of prescription medicines in Australia over a ten-year period. When designed as a printed report, data was provided as a series of files, some exported from databases as plain text and containing a large amount of extraneous formatting.

Looking Glass Press designed 10 such reports (2001–2011) until the project went fully online in 2012 as downloadable Word and Excel files.

This project was always a study in patience and dedication to detail, as the main two tables spanned 100–200 pages each!
