Age(-sex) Pyramid

Description

A bar chart graphically representing the age structure of the population, usually in five-year age groups, for males and females separately. The age structure of the population usually approximates the shape of a pyramid because mortality progressively reduces the number in each birth cohort as it ages. The age pyramid is useful to show the existence of unusually large or small cohorts, and in this way not only conveys a lot about a country's past demographic history, but also a great deal about its demographic future.
