Camel Population Trend in Pakistan

The data from 1956 to 2012 for camel was converted to graphic presentation in Pakistan. Camel population trends looks like stable but I really do not believe in the reliability of the data.

Camel Population Trend in Pakistan

Pakistan is one of the important camel countries in the world, especially because of the high milk yielder types in the country. The population of the camels is now stable but the history is a witness of a dent in the population because of the bad years (severe drought and other conflicts).

Barela Camel
Brela camel is one of the world’s leading milk camel. The camel is very docile and polite during milking.

Here I try to give a visual expression of the camel population trend in the country. In this graphic expression, the data (the year 1956 to 2012) is presented which clearly tells the trends. Apparently, the camel population trends look like stable but I really do not believe in the reliability of the data.
