Infographic description

The title of the infographic is "Number of full-time academics, by rank, age group and gender, 2021/2022"

This infographic comprises of two horizontal stacked histograms, placed side by side, indicating the number of full-time teaching personnel in Canadian universities by five-year age group in 2021/2022. Men are shown on the left histogram, and women are shown on the right. Ranks are depicted by three stacked coloured bars.

The line and the horizontal bars on the y-axis are located in the middle of the chart and divide the pyramid into two. They indicate age groups from 'less than 30 years' to '75 years and over' in five-year increments.

The horizontal bars on the x-axis represent the number of full-time academics per 1,000 for each age group. The scale goes from 0 to 110. They are identical on both the right and the left sides of the y-axis. For men full-time academics, the largest cohort was those who were aged 50 to 54 years, with 95 academics per 1,000 representing 52 full professors, 37 associate professors and 6 assistant professors (per 1,000). For women full-time academics, the largest cohort was those who were aged 45 to 49 years, with 68 academics representing 18 full professors, 36 associate professors and 14 assistant professors (per 1,000).

The smallest cohorts were for those aged less than 30 years for both genders. For both men and women, there was 1 academic aged less than 30 years per 1,000.

The pyramid has a narrow base, a thick middle section lopsided on the left side and an apex slightly less narrow than the base, giving it the shape of a spinning top.
