Demo/graphics (I)(c)

Here are the natural population change estimates for southern and central Newfoundland for the past twenty years, in pretty coloured graphic format:

The northeast coast, roughly from the Baie Verte Peninsula to the Straight Shore, was the canary in the demographic coal mine, the first to show natural population decline. While each of these rural off-Avalon regions have had at least some years with estimated natural population increases, in the aggregate, the southern and central swath of Newfoundland have had surpluses of deaths over births every year since 1999.

And the trend is accellerating in all four of these Census Divisions, though particularly so along the Northeast Coast.
