Building a prototype app that would aggregate information about MSD’s income support payments


Ministry of Social Development



Project description

MSD has work underway to better communicate and store the information it holds about its income support system. MSD intends to extend this work by using the existing prototype employment assistance app as the basis for developing a similar app to bring together information about MSD’s income support payments (information which was previously published by MSD as the annual Statistical Report). The new app would need to be designed around income support payments and data sets, as well as cater for ways people would use the information. The intern will undertake a project that will contribute to the new app by designing, producing and testing options to present income support information.

Skills required

Analysis, statistics, design, R programming language (with experience in Shiny package desirable), data visualisation.
