Population Pyramids: Exercise

(http://faculty.washington.edu/krumme/resources/pyramids.html)


For a country or region (county, state, province etc.) within a country (which you can relate to your identified interest area for this class) find the data needed for the Population Pyramid and then EITHER
  1. present the data as a table AND draw by hand (with a ruler, please) a population pyramid AND interpret (in your own words) it on an at least 1/2 type-written page, including demographic peculiarities you may find.

    You may either:

    1. Scan your own Pyramid and post it, together with your interpretation, on your Website, send Email to econgeog@u after posting.
    2. Make a copy of your original and submit the copy (saving the original for your Portfolio).

  2. OR: you find the data and a population pyramid (already drawn) which you then interpret (in your own words and in more detail than above including relating it to your identified interest area in this class) on at least 1 (type-written) page (=300 words)

Since we do not want to violate copyright laws, you do not have to copy a 'copy-righted' pyramid into your Website if you can link to it.

For Alternative 1, please present your data and identify your source or sources in detail. For Alternative 2, the data are desirable but may not be absolutely necessary as long as you can interpret the pyramid quantitatively without the original data.

DUE: Tuesday, April 22 (Wednesday noon, if per Web; NOT as attachment; paper printout due Thursday; you need to notify instructor if you post your exercise after the due date and time!)

[As with all exercises, late exercises will count for 50% for one week after due-date. Exercises will remain due for the final "Portfolio"]
