Question Description

Population pyramids show the age structure of the population of a country or region. Different growth patterns caused by varying cultural values, war events or both help shape the pyramid. You will obtain the data (population pyramids) from https://www.census.gov/data-tools/demo/idb/informa... for three different countries. Once you're at the site, you will need to locate the three countries of Ethiopia, Indonesia and UK:

  1. Click the drop-down menu under Select Report, and choose the last option "Population Pyramid Graph"
  2. Under the Select one or More Countries area, hold down your control button and choose Ethiopia, Indonesia and the United Kingdom
  3. Leave all other selections as entered and click the Submit button at the bottom

Analyze the data: Each of the three countries will produce a population pattern that may be recognized as rapid growth, stable growth or growth decline. After you obtain the pyramids following the directions above, copy and paste them into your assignment and then identify which of the three patterns each country demonstrates.

Write a supporting essay: Please write a brief essay comparing the three pyramids. Consider historical events, the present global population structure and the influence, if any, of the past and the present on future population growth. Compare and contrast these pyramids. Which country will have the greatest population increase? Why? What problems might these countries be facing? You may use additional information from library sources or the Internet. Please cite any outside sources used to prepare your essay and provide a "References Cited" section at the end of your assignment.

Format: Your paper should be 3-5 pages long (excluding figures and references), double-spaced, 1-inch margins all around, and 12-pt font (Times New Roman or similar).

Population Pyramid on Environmental Change and Sustainability Course



Analysis for the Ethiopia Pyramid
Referring to the pyramid graph above, it’s clear that Ethiopia has growth decline. For a
country to achieve a growth decline, the population at birth rate should higher compared to the
youths and the aging population. Considering the graph above, Ethiopia has more birth rates
compared to death rates and the aging population. Female and male children at ages of between 0
to 4 years are currently at between 8 to 10 million. Though the birth rates are high, the aging
population for both males and females are decreasing constantly from the age of 80 to 84 years.
The population of youths, between 20 to 24 and 50 to 54 is decreasing constantly. Youth age is of
great impact to national development (Healey, 2000).
A decrease in the youth’s population implies that Ethiopia is less developed. Therefore,
though Ethiopia has a higher birth rates, it is characterized by high death rates. Death rates among



youths has been contributed due to factors such as wars and poor medical standards. Therefore,
the government of Ethiopia needs to introduce effective measures towards the declining population
growth. Among these measures are, contr...
