La pirámide de la población es una representación gráfica de barras de la estructura por sexo y edad de una

En el eje vertical del histograma se representan los grupos de edad (por lo general en intervalos de cinco
años, salvo en el caso de los mayores de 85 años que quedan englobados en una barra única). En el eje horizontal, doble, se representan los efectivos de la población (a la izquierda los hombres y a la derecha las mujeres) en porcentajes o en cifras absolutas. Cada barra de la pirámide representa el porcentaje (o número)de individuos con la misma edad. 
Las pirámides nos permiten conocer las características y la historia demográfica de una población
