POPULATION CHANGES IN MANITOBA’S YOUTH 1996-2006
Analyzing population structure and trends is a way to understand changes in Manitoba’s youth population. A basic statistical analysis of changes in population, analysis of population pyramids and measuring changes to population in the same cohort over years provides a graphical representation of population over time that is easy to understand. Local, regional, provincial and federal officials can use this analysis to inform decision making related to youth mobility in Manitoba’s remote and rural regions. In this report, data from the Statistics Canada Census of Population is used to analyze population changes in the province of Manitoba as a whole and the eight economic regions within it.
