My boundaries shape file has the following attributes; CODE, PROVINCE, AREA, SHAPE_LENG and SHAPE_AREA (note that there are no geo- coordinates). My data on the csv file has the following fields; PROVINCE, MALE, FEMALE. What l need is to have proportional symbol like a circle representing the males and females for each of the provinces on the map. How can l accomplish this???

Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.


If the issue you're having is getting the coordinates, you can either calculate the centroids (in QGIS, it's Vector > Geometry Tools > Polygon Centroids), run the provinces through a geocoder, or if there are not too many, just go one-by-one and Google '[Province Name] coordinates.'

Once you get the coordinates, you can load the points into QGIS and import whatever markers you want to use.
