Compare and Contrast

The main patterns in the graph that cover the period 2000 to 2010 is that there

is an overall increase in the population in Scotland

                                                                          The main patterns that have

occurred during the period 2000 to 2010 in the choropleth map [fig 1] are the

increases in the population in urban and city areas of major towns and cities

around the Firth of Forth river in Scotland.

                                                                  There are several variations in the graph

that illustrates the flow of the population between 2000 and 2010.It shows a

steady decrease of new borns to early teens e.g.0 to 15.In fact 72,000 of these

young people have left Scotland during this period.
                                                                                    In contrast to the decrease just

mentioned, there has been a steady influx of older teenagers to young adults

in the years 2000 to 2010.Approximate 83,200 in fact have returned or have

reached the age of 16 to be included in these numbers.

                                                                                    The graph then goes on to

show that between 2000 and 2010 there was a steady decrease in the number

of 30 to 44 year olds residing in Scotland. The number of residence in that age

gap, went down by 126,700 people.
                                                    In contrast to those statistics the graph goes on to

show a reverse in the ebb of people,to show that between 2000 and 2010

approximately 129,935 people aged between 45 to 59 returned to

Scotland.Also during that time 92,898 people between the ages of 60 t0 74

returned to Scotland to live.

To add to the ageing population of Scotland the graph indicates that 51,362

people aged 75 and over decided to make Scotland their home. These figures

show an ageing population...
