A way of predicting population changes AGE STRUCTURE DIAGRAMS POPULATION STRUCTURE The population pyramid displays the age and sex structure of a country or given area Population in Five Year Age bands MALES To the left

Usually, but not always, In % to make for easier comparisons between countries FEMALES To the right What Population Pyramids Show Us Economically More Developed Country

Economically Less Developed Country KEY slope of pyramid indicate the death rate width of the base is related to birth rate/fertility rate proportions of men and women can suggest male or female migrations height of graph can indicate life expectancy (ignore the very thin end of the wedge as occurs on graph B as these people are a definite minority) "kinks" indicate dramatic reductions in birth rate or increases in death rate in the past area of graph indicates total population - compare areas of different population age groups or different sex on one graph

The overall shape of the population pyramid can indicate whether it is an Economically More Developed Country or Economically Less Developed Country Population pyramid of a less developed nation (broad base population pyramid) Population Pyramid of Nigeria (1995) Importance of Population Pyramids A BROAD BASE POPULATION PYRAMID MEANS A COUNTRY SHOULD:

increase food production build more homes & schools plan for more job opportunities for the young in future implement birth control program/campaigns Usually agricultural population with problems of overpopulation.
