Mapping gender in Pakistan

Rabia Butt explores mapping data from her home country.

I created my first 3D maps from using the census data that interested me, so I chose to use the Pakistani census data of 2017 and 1998 to look at the difference in the gender population of Pakistan in 3D maps.

I got my data from the Pakistani census website. I created a map which showed the different gender population in Pakistan in 2017 which had male, female and transgender. The transgender population was extremely low and the there was a difference in the male and female population as well as male was higher than female.

Therefore, I decided to compare the 2017 result the previous census of Pakistan which had a 19 year gap since the latest census. The previous census did not include transgender people and there was still a gap between the male and female population as male population was still higher than female.

This map shows the population of Pakistan from the census of 1998. The blue represents male and pink female.
