Infographic description

The title of the infographic is "Annual average growth rate, natural increase and migratory increase per intercensal period, Canada, 1851 to 2056"

The title of the infographic is "Average annual growth rate, natural increase and migratory increase per intercensal period, Canada, 1851 to 2056."

This infographic is a combination bar and line chart.

The line and vertical bars on the x-axis represent the observed population growth (line) and components of population change (vertical bars) in Canada over the 10-year periods 1851 to 1861, 1861 to 1871, 1871 to 1881, 1881 to 1891, 1891 to 1901, 1901 to 1911, 1911 to 1921, 1921 to 1931, 1931 to 1941, 1941 to 1951, 1951 to 1961, 1961 to 1971, 1971 to 1981, 1981 to 1991, 1991 to 2001, and 2001 to 2011. The observed growth rates are from census data while the components of population change come the population estimates program, or from external academic sources.

The line and vertical bar next represents the population growth and components of population growth for the five year period 2011 to 2016. Break marks on the x-axis indicate that the time series is interrupted by one five year period.

Following this are a line and vertical bars for the ten year periods 2016 to 2016, 2016 to 2026, 2026 to 2036, 2036 to 2046, and 2046 to 2056. The projected section on the right side of the graph is shaded grey. This indicates that the growth rates and components of population change for these time periods are based on population projections and not census data.

The y-axis shows the percentage growth rates and ranges from -1.0% to 3.5%.
