Researchers’ Blog Ages of Chinese Immigrants Arriving in Canada, 1852-1929

A draft to be sure, but here's a viz I whipped up this afternoon of immigrant age over time. The numbers on the right side refer to the gender breakdown for each decade. I came up with several other ideas as I worked on this (considering other ways to break up the information, change in the color scheme, etc.), but it was too many years to re-export from Tableau each time. Hoping to pass this along to the UBC team this week to help spark some research ideas for them. I'd love to see this annotated with some explanations for big drops and spikes for various groups. Perhaps ideas from this can be incorporated into the final, epic viz.
