The age/gender distribution of a population affects its growth rate and provides information on its past, present, and future growth patterns. By creating age-sex distribution charts (called population pyramids) you can tell much about a nation’s demographic history and project its future. In this lesson plan, students construct and interpret population pyramids (age-sex distribution charts) and discuss differences in population characteristics and population growth rates among several different countries.
