8.3.4 Population Diagrams
Level of expertise required for this Chapter: Beginner; specifically for LUPMIS @ TCPD
You can calculate and display population growth and numbers as circles with the 'Population diagram' tool: Population diagram > Settlement (1, see below) > Population Start (2) > Growth (3, percentage growth p.a.) > Current & future (4) > Enter number of years considered .... > Execute
The display will be similar to the one below. You can also have the topographic map as background.
With the entered growth rate, it will calculate the future population and display in a table:
(See Annex 15.1 for the formula and a 'manual' calculation approach).
Alternatively, if you don't have the growth rate, but the future population, you can also enter the population number (3, see below):
You can also have two future scenarios, with different growth rates for the first time period and the second (3, see below). Don't forget to tick the 'Current and future after x and then after y years':
It will calculate accordingly with these different growth rates:
