I am quite new with QGIS and I have run into a problem that I would love your suggestions to. Here we go:
I want to end up with a municipality map with the sum of perish population.
Here's what I have:
Layer1: (Shape) Parishes with municipality code and perish code as attributes
Layer2: (Attribute) population number with perish code as attributes
I am joining the layers, no problems so far, but when I want to dissolve and sum up population through the "Dissolve with stats" plugin, I don't see my joined attributes. I only see the original attributes and when I open the .dbf file in excel, I still only have the originals.
I figure that the join is not a "permanent" join, but just a "relational" one. Is there a way to change this or is there another way around it?
