A population pyramid is a graphic way to show the age/gender composition of a population and its age/gender structure. The “structure” describes the relative number of people at different ages by gender. Analyzing the population structure of a place is a way to understand the needs of that place. It allows policymakers to see what kinds of people live in an area and which programs to target. Population pyramids are illustrations of what is happening in a community. The shape of a population pyramid is a result of migration, births, and deaths. It can also reflect historical, socioeconomic, and political events, e.g., the baby boom which followed WWII.
Construct a population pyramids for Longview, Lerado, College Station, Palm Valley, and a city of your choice.
The data is provided in the excel sheet for the four cities, and there are instructions on using the Census to find the information on your city. Compare the 5 and write a small paper about your observations of the population throughout Texas.
