KGP SCHEDULE
WEEKS10-13
-age structures and housing compositions as given in census data; - For one named urban area extract census data regarding age structure and housing composition
-Describe the patterns.

-Discuss the limitations of census data.
Census used for: primary source collection; choropleth maps.
Evidence limitation.
-their effects upon the size ,type and location of housing developments, -For the urban area being studied, look at the geographical pattern of housing developments according to size, type and location.
-Links between structure and housing composition, e.g. provision for the elderly.
Secondary source utilisation: Ordnance Survey map extracts; photographs.
-geographical segregation of social groups in urban areas based upon wealth,age and ethnicity. -Using census data, identify areas of relative poverty and wealth in the area being studied.
-Relate areas of wealth/poverty to age and ethnicity. -Identify changes, which lead to movement from areas of low income to high income, and vice versa. -Summarise segregation in urban areas, linking the three factors.
Choropleth map of Birmingham wards (1991) to show percentage distribution of :-
1. Over 65s
2. Under 15s
3. Home Owners
4. White Residents.
LOWER SIXTH USE OF CENSUS DATA.
  1. Task
    Using Birmingham as a case study produce a report of
    1 age structure and housing composition.
    Describe the pattern using analysis of ward data collated in spreadsheet format.
    2 Using the census data identify areas of relative wealth and poverty. Use the idea of a transect along the Stratford Road through Sparkbrook, Sparkhill and Hall Green
    3 Summarise segregation of white/non-white population within the urban area (use transect)
    4 Identify patterns of housing development within the urban area (use transect)
    5 identify links between housing composition and age structure of the population.
  2. Support
    1 - Use www.pupilvision.com to find ward statistics from the link provided on the human geography links page or click here.
    2. extract statistics and place in an excel document.
    3 Use the excel package to produce scattergraphs (or any other appropriate graph) to illustrate the links you are researching.
    4 When it is completed e-mail the work to pupilvision@hotmail.com
  3. Schedule
    1 - Draw graphs of U15 vs % owner occupied, U15 vs rented, over 60 vs owner occupied and over 60 vs rented.
    2 - Draw graph of % owner occupied vs ward distance and % rented vs ward distance from centre.

    3 - Draw graph of %white vs ward distance and % non white vs ward distance from centre.
    4 - Draw graph to show housing composition in our A34 transect through Sparkbrook,Sparkhill and Hall Green.
    5 - Draw graphs of U15 vs owner occupied and over 60 and owner occupied.
    6 - Draw choropleth maps of selected variables of ward data. Click here for WARD MAP
