This data was obtained from statistics Canada’s 2011 Canadian census. The Canadian age/sex datasets provided by eSpatial can be used to examine and analyse the Canadian population in relation to different age and sex categories. These datasets can be used in conjunction with the eSpatial mapping software to create reports which investigate the age and sex structure of Canada. Reports can be generated which examine the age structure of the total population, male population and female population within Canada at the province/territory, census division and census metropolitan/agglomeration area geographical levels. You can also link and connect your own personal or commercial data to these datasets. The age and sex structure of Canada can also therefore be analysed in relation to your own data. Below is an example of a simple Canadian age/sex report. This report was designed by eSpatial to illustrate how to get the most out of the eSpatial mapping software and the data it provides.
A simple report was created using the eSpatial mapping software and the Age/Sex (Canadian Provinces and Territories) dataset it provides. This report examines the Canadian population in relation to people aged between 15 and 64. The Canadian age/sex datasets provided by eSpatial offer a number of different age categories which can be reported on but for the purpose of this report the 15 to 64 age category was chosen as an example.
Provinces/territories are colored and categorized according to the number of people aged between 15 and 64 within them. The graduated color scheme adopted by eSpatial mapping software allows for a quick and easy analysis of this data. It is evident from the map that yellow colored provinces/territories (e.g. Yukon) have the lowest number of people aged between 15 to 64 living there, less than 25,000 people while red colored provinces/territories (e.g. Quebec) have the highest number of people in this age category, more than 2,555,000 people. It is also therefore easy to surmise that the number of people aged between 15 and 64 living in the light orange (e.g. Northwest Territories), orange (e.g. Saskatchewan) and dark orange (e.g. Alberta) colored provinces/territories lies somewhere between 25,000 and 2,555,000 people respectively.
Firstly the topic reflected in the map can be changed quickly and easily simply by selecting the map this field option. Once this option has been selected the map will change to reflect the values in this topic (e.g. select the map this field option on Males 15 to 64 years to see these values mapped in relation to Canada’s provinces and territories). Secondly the report can be sorted in ascending or descending order. This is useful when trying to decipher quickly which areas have the highest/lowest values (e.g. select sort ascending on % females 15 to 64 years to see which province/territory has the lowest proportion of females aged between 15 and 64). Finally the report can also be filtered by specific values. This is useful when trying to quickly search for areas with specific values (e.g. select filter results on 15 to 64 years so that provinces/territories which have between 500,000 and 1,000,000 people aged between 15 and 64 are only displayed on the map).
