Creating a population pyramid
A population pyramid is a chart that shows population distribution by age and gender. Age is typically distributed using five-year age groups. The youngest groups are located at the base and the oldest groups at the top. Population pyramids can indicate how slow or fast the population ages, and can also be used to forecast how the population will change in the future.
