2016 Generation Population Pyramid
Population pyramids help show how populations are composed and how they are changing. Here is a population pyramid from the Unite States in August 2016 showing various age groups: baby boomers, generation X, generation Y, and generation Z. Typically, there are three trends in population pyramids: expansive, constrictive, and stationary. These illustrate the trajectory of a regional population, which may be growing, shrinking, or staying the same.
