Mapping Demographic Change with Cartes et Données

Demographic change over time can be shown on several types of quantitative thematic maps. Some types (e.g. choropleth and bar graph maps) have been frequently used to portray spatial and temporal trends in population change and its two components, natural increase and migration. Other less popular types (e.g. nightingale and polar graph maps) can also be used for displaying demographic trends from a more complex (i.e. multidimensional) perspective. This paper discusses several cartographic techniques, available in the latest version of a French software packages Cartes et Données, for mapping population change in the United States at the state and county level.
