Statistical Charts

There are 11 statistical charts. These vary from Age Pyramid, Names in History to Places by Period.

Source of Data

The source of the charts can be a GenBase, Group of GenBases, List, Individual, Spouse or Both.

List

One thing to watch for when you select a list is whether a GenBase is automatically selected for you too. If it is then you will see the GenBase name highlighted.

If no GenBase name is displayed and you check "Only 1" then effectively no persons will be chosen to appear in your chart.

 

Group

Prior to Processing a Group you must have a GenBase selected.

 

 

Age Pyramid

Only deceased individuals are included in this chart. Also only male and female individuals are included.

The chart displays the numbers of males and females that died in 5 year periods.

So it might show that for the period of age 60-65 that 5 of the females in the population died but 10 of the males died. The number at the top of the chart is the number.

The lowest age period is 0 years up to but not including 5 years.

The highest age period (with an end date) is 110 years up to but not including 115 years.

People 115 years and older are grouped into the last period.

All things being equal there would not be any people in this period.

If you have people in this period it usually means that the recorded data for those people is not accurate.

If you only have males (with no females) or females (with no males) that are displayed then the pyramid looks more like a stack of horizontal bars than a pyramid shape.

 

Births by Month

This is based on the birth date. So if a person only has a baptismal date then this person will not be counted.

 

Places by Period
