Examples of the Model Queries

A few examples will help you to understand how you can use the model.

Example One

You might be interested in learning how many 85+ persons are projected to live in your area in 2026.

Enter your selection

1. Enter Year 2026
2. Enter FSA B3T
3. Enter age cohort 85+

The following result will be shown:

Total Population for B3T is 14767 in year 2026

FSA Gender Age Group Number of People
B3T F 85+ 66
B3T M 85+ 25


Example One

You might also ask how many of this population will likely fall into each of the four health states.

Enter your selection

1. Enter Year 2026
2. Enter FSA B3T
3. Enter age cohort 85+
4. Enter Health All

The following result will appear:

Total Population for B3T is 14767 in year 2026

FSA Gender Age Group Health State Number of People
B3T F 85+ H1 16
B3T F 85+ H2 13
B3T F 85+ H3 14
B3T F 85+ H4 23
B3T M 85+ H1 10
B3T M 85+ H2 6
B3T M 85+ H3 *
B3T M 85+ H4 5

The use of an * indicates that there are less than 5 persons in this category. Any number less than 5 will not be reported in the tables.


Example Three

If you are only interested in the wealth state of the 85+ age group you can:

1. Enter Year 2026
2. Enter FSA B3T
3. Enter Age 85+
4. Enter Wealth All

The following result will appear:

Total Population for B3T is 14767 in year 2026

FSA Gender Age Group Wealth State Number of People
B3T F 85+ W1 17
B3T F 85+ W2 28
B3T F 85+ W3 11
B3T F 85+ W4 9
B3T M 85+ W1 6
B3T M 85+ W2 11
B3T M 85+ W3 *
B3T M 85+ W4 *

The use of an * indicates that there are less than 5 persons in this category. Any number less than 5 will not be reported in the tables.


Example Four

The final level of analysis combines health and wealth to produce sixteen possible outcomes ranging from H1W1 to H4W4. In the first case (H1W1) would be people who are dependence free, in good health and well off. At the other end of the continuum would be persons with institutionalized dependence and very limited resources.

1. Enter Year 2001
2. Enter FSA A0A
3. Enter Gender Female
4. Enter Age 75-79
5. Enter Health All
6. Enter Wealth All

The result is shown below:

Total Population for A0A is 57949 in year 2001

FSA Gender Age Group Health State Wealth State Number of People
A0A F 75-79 H1 W1 147
A0A F 75-79 H1 W2 165
A0A F 75-79 H1 W3 130
A0A F 75-79 H1 W4 136
A0A F 75-79 H2 W1 31
A0A F 75-79 H2 W2 34
A0A F 75-79 H2 W3 27
A0A F 75-79 H2 W4 28
A0A F 75-79 H3 W1 14
A0A F 75-79 H3 W2 15
A0A F 75-79 H3 W3 12
A0A F 75-79 H3 W4 13
A0A F 75-79 H4 W1 12
A0A F 75-79 H4 W2 13
A0A F 75-79 H4 W3 10
A0A F 75-79 H4 W4 11
