Map Set 17: Deaths Stacked Bar Chart Maps - Introduction

Stacked Bar Chart Maps - Total death rates (1969-2001), by area (Belfast, Derry), by status, at ward level (2 maps)

image of mapThis set of maps focuses on the urban areas of Belfast and Derry. The maps show the total death rates per 1000 population at ward level, due to the conflict, and employ a stacked bar chart to identify the status of the victims within each ward. The information used to locate and plot each death is provided by Malcolm Sutton’s Index of Deaths 1969-2001.

There are 582 electoral wards in Northern Ireland as defined by the Boundary Commission for Northern Ireland in 1995. The electoral ward shapefile was downloaded from EDINA borders website.

The ‘peacelines’ erected during the troubles with the intention of minimising conflict at interface areas are identified and located. The peacelines shapefile was downloaded from the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA).
