Visualizing data on refugees in Canada using R
This graph shows the cumulative number of Government Resettled refugees in Canada between 2011 and September 2016
This shows the level of education of the Government Resettled refugees in Canada. Note that this is for refugees of all ages (children included), hence why there are so many with low education.
This chart shows total number of refugee claimants in Canada each year from 2011-2015 by country. The top 10 countries are coloured, and the rest are grouped together in Other.
As can be seen by this graph of Syrian refugees who entered Canada between November 2015 and September 2016, there is a fairly equal number of male and females.
Mapping endangered and extinct languages in North America
UNESCO's classification system to show just how 'in trouble' the language is:
- Vulnerable - most children speak the language, but it may be restricted to certain domains (e.g., home)
- Definitely endangered - children no longer learn the language as a 'mother tongue' in the home
- Severely endangered - language is spoken by grandparents and older generations; while the parent generation may understand it, they do not speak it to children or among themselves
- Critically endangered - the youngest speakers are grandparents and older, and they speak the language partially and infrequently
- Extinct - there are no speakers left
