The Demographics tab displays your data set as a breakdown of males/females and age group on the Population Pyramid tab and as a bar chart on the Age Profile (RACGP) tab .
The data is displayed as a bar chart of the number of patients per age group. Age group defaults to years but can be changed to months by selecting 'Mths' in the Age filter.
Choosing to view demographics in months allows children to be targeted.
Age Profile (RACGP)
This tab shows a bar chart of patients by age and gender grouped in age groups tailored to the RACGP Quality Improvement & Continuing Professional Development plan.
