A slideshow of maps showing the population change in England and Wales between 2001 and 2011 divided by gender and the age ranges 0 to 14, 15 to 29, 30 to 44, 45 to 64 and 65 and over.Continue reading »
Below are maps showing how the population change in London between 2001 and 2011 differs depending on the age range and gender. Swipe across each image to see how the male and female population change differs across London’s Boroughs. Here…Continue reading »
The simple answer to this is they never existed. The reduction seen across much of England and Wales in the population of the 30 to 44 age range between 2001 and 2011 is a consequence of the low birth rates…Continue reading »
Following on from my previous post I thought I would look at London in some more detail. In the ten years between 2001 and 2011 every borough’s population has increased – with the exception of Kensington and Chelsea. The breakdowns…Continue reading »

In a previous post I talked about the Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) in London, and how a “standard” representation only reflects the geographical reality of the land. By utilising a cartogram tool this potential issue can be overcome by rescaling each areal unit by its resident population, for the IMD I used mid-year population estimates available from the Office for National Statistics at Lower Layer Super Output Area (LSOA) level. To add a layer of context to the previous maps, I have constructed cartograms for London to illustrate the change in population between 2001 and 2009. I have used 2001 census data along with 2009 mid-year population estimates to calculate the percentage change for each of the 24,140 output areas (that contain on average 250 individuals nationally) that make up Greater London for the age ranges: 0-4, 5-14, 15-24, 25-44, 45-64 and 65 and over. To create the cartogram aspect of the maps I have used the total population of that particular age range in 2009 to rescale each areal unit. I have also produced the same population change maps using the “standard” representation of London to allow comparison with the cartograms. The results of this can be seen […]Continue reading »
One of the maps that I liberated from the great LSE clearout sometime ago was this visually pleasing and well balanced representation of the ratio of Females to Males from the 1961 Census. This kind of map has a specific story to tell, announcing that for a long time the women and men in the […]Continue reading »
