Objectives
  • WHAT is a population pyramid?
  • HOW to read a population pyramid?
  • Recognise SHAPESof population pyramids.
  • IMPORTANCE of population pyramids.
what is a population pyramid
What is a population pyramid?
  • It is a diagram that gives information about the proportion of males and females in each age group.
  • Also shows:

- proportion of young people (0 -14 )

- proportion of working people (15 – 59)

- proportion of elderly people (60+)

Each age-group designation is called a COHORT

What is a population pyramid?

Vertical Axis - Age Groups

Elderly dependents

Working population

Young dependents

Horizontal Axis – Percentage / number

how to read a population pyramid
How to read a population pyramid?
  • Read the title e.g. country or city or racial group
  • Comment on general shape of the pyramid
  • Note the proportion of people in various age groups (cohorts)
  • Note the sex ratio
  • Interpret the data
types of population pyramid
Types of Population Pyramid

1. Triangular-shaped

2. Beehive-shaped Pyramid

3. Rectangular-shaped Pyramid

Shape of pyramids is controlled by

  • Births (but mostly CBR!)
  • deaths, &
  • migrations.
broad based pyramid
Broad-based Pyramid

Title: India, 2000

Shape: Broad Base - high birth rates

Narrow Top - small elderly pop

- high death rate

Proportion: - Large proportion of young

- high young dependency

Sex Ratio: Balance pyramid - Balance sex ratio

beehive shaped pyramid
Beehive-shaped Pyramid

Title: Singapore, 2000

Shape: Rocket-shaped / Narrow Base

– Low Birth Rates, Slow pop growth

Proportion: Large proportion of working

population, 15-59 yr old - large

group of economically active pop

Sex Ratio: Balanced pyramid

  • Where are Beehive shaped pyramids on the Demographic Transition Model?
rectangular pyramid
Rectangular Pyramid

Title: Netherlands, 2000

Shape: Rectangular-shaped - Zero Pop Growth

Narrow Base - Low Birth Rates

- Life-expectancy is high e.g. 80+

- Low death rates

Proportion: Bars of equal length - Balance

population structure and composition
Population Structure and Composition
  • Population pyramids…show age and gender groups. How do MDC’s and LDC’s differ?
    • 1.) Sex Ratio: # of males per 100 females. In general slightly more males born, but women outlive men
      • Eur and NA 95 males: 100 females
      • World wide 102 males: 100 females
pop structure and composition cont d
Pop Structure and Composition – cont’d.
  • 2.) Age Distribution
    • Dependency Ratio: # of people too old or young to work, compared to # of people in productive yrs.
      • % of pop under 15 = % over 65 divided by % in between 15-65 multiplied by 100
      • Tells you how many dependents for every 100 workers
      • Stage 2 countries: ratio is 1:1 (1 worker for every dependent) Dependents are young
      • Stage 4 countries ratio is 2:1 (2 workers for every dependent) Dependents are young and old
age distribution cont d
Age Distribution – cont’d
  • Graying of the pop in MDCs – more than ¼ of all govn’t expenditures in US, Canada, Japan, and W. Eur goes to Social Security, health care, and other programs for the elderly
  • Baby Boomer Cohort in US (born 1946-1964)…what does this mean for you?
  • Generation X = 1965-1980
importance of population pyramids
Importance of Population Pyramids
  • Policy Planning

~ future housing estates

~ future schools

~ future jobs

  • Comparison with other countries

~ developed (US) vs developing (India)
