GEOG 1101 Human Geography

Table of Contents


Part A

Purpose: Upon successful completion of the assignment, you will have:

Create charts that include population statistics

Use the charts to explain the trends and population characteristics

Table 1: Alberta.

Populations of British Columbia and Saskatchewan.

(Census Years 1971-2003 [Statistics Canada.Table 1-7-10-0005-01 Population estimates for Julyabyage sex Statistics Canada.

This section will show you how to create a chart showing the projected and past population of three provinces in Canada (Table 1).

Canada (Table 1) You will then be able to extract additional data and describe the population, as well as compare and contrast them.

Complete Table 1.

Complete Table 1.

Use the Table 1 data series to create a chart that shows the total population against the census years for the three provinces.

Add a title, legend, or axes.

Compare and contrast the data in your chart. Start with the earliest date and then describe the trend using population data and dates.

Part B

To complete the table, visit BCStats Population Projections website.

Task A: Simple graph

Annual Population Growth Rate

Below is a table that shows the population growth rate calculated by the formula.


Growth rate = Change in population/Time=


Chart of Total Population Compared to Census Years In The Three Provinces

Below is a bar graph that compares the population of British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan.

Comparative, Descsription and Contrast Of Three Data Series As Shown Above Beginning With The Earliest Date (General Trend and Population Data).

It is evident from the chart that:

Saskatchewan’s population has an irregular growth rate.

This is due to the fluctuation in the population growth over time. For example, between 1971-1976 census, there was a negative growth, while between 1976-1981, there was a positive increase.

Negative growth was also recorded between 1986-91.

This indicates an unpredictable growth pattern.

Saskatchewan is the province with the lowest average population growth. It is among three.

Saskatchewan has shown an irregular trend in population growth between 1971 and 2036, unlike British Columbia and Alberta.

Between 1971 and 2036 census, Alberta’s population has been on the rise.

This can be seen in the positive growth rate for all census years.

It is the second-largest province in the United States, after British Columbia.

Between 1971 and 2036 census, the population of British Columbia has been on an upward trend.

This can be seen in the positive growth rate for all census years.

It is home to the largest number of people among all three provinces.

Completion of the Table Using the Total Population for Each Age Group by Gender

Below is the table showing the results of the calculation of the percentage total population divided by gender for each age group.

The formula was used to calculate the percentages.

Constructing a Population Pyramind(S), Using the Data in The Table In 4 Above

Below is a Kwantlen population pyramind.


The pyramid shows that Kwantlen’s median age population (21-69) is much higher than the proportion of the young and old population.

Gender-based percentages for the age groups between 20 and 69 have higher percentages, with 5.4% to 7.0% compared to those between 0 and 19, and 70-80 and over, which range from 2% to 6 %.

The proportion of the elderly population is lower than that of the young population.

This indicates that there is a lower dependency ratio because of a larger population of the median age population. These people are more active than the dormant population which is the elderly over 70 years old and the younger person under 20 years.

Below Is A List Of The Vancouver Region’s Population Pyramind.

The pyramid shows that Vancouver’s median age population (20-69 year olds) is greater than Vancouver’s young population (below 20) and older population (above 70 years).

The percentages of age groups by gender, between 20 and 69, have higher percentages, with a range between 5.6% to 9.2%. This is in contrast to the percentages for those aged 0-19 and 70-80 and older, which range between 2% and 3.7%.

The proportion of the elderly population is lower than that of the young.

This indicates that there is a lower dependency ratio due to a larger population of the median age population. The older population is more active than the dormant population.

Comparison and Distinction between The Two Regions

It is clear from the pyramids that males are more common than females in these two areas at younger ages. However, as the years go by, the proportion of females tends to decrease.

This shows that females have a longer life expectancy than males.

Both regions have a higher proportion of a working population (median age) than a dormant population (aged or young).

This shows a low dependency rate in these two regions.

The percentage of the elderly population in both regions (above 70) is about the same for both genders (around 11% of total population).

Although the characteristics of each region’s population are similar, there are some differences.

Kwantlen has a lower percentage of young people (below 20) than Vancouver (about 15%).

This means that Kwantlen has a higher birthrate than Vancouver.

Vancouver region has a higher median age (20 to 69 year olds) than Kwantlen (about 65%).

This indicates that Vancouver has a larger working population than Kwantlen.
