I think the age distribution of the neighbourhood I live in in Amsterdam has changed quite a bit in the recent years. There are more and more kids coming in, ‘replacing’ older people. To see if I could find the facts about this, I went to the Open Data Portal of the city of Amsterdam..
It turns out that all the relevant data is in the BBGA file, so it was possible to create the same view for Amsterdam (only on 5 year intervals). These are the biggest neighbourhoods in terms of population:
You can already see some huge differences and some interesting neighbourhoods in here.
Ijburg west for example, has a typical shape of many families with small children living there, while the Oude Pijp is a typical place where students and starters live.
Some other fun facts:
Highest percentage of babies and toddlers (0-4 year olds) in Elzenhagen
Highest percentage of kids in IJburg Zuid
Highest percentage over 65 in Buitenveldert Oost
For now, I have created all the visuals in Excel, next step on my list is to create a D3 chart where you can select your own area, and compare for yourself!
