  • The first population pyramid visually shows the actual age of male and female Manitobans from birth to age 90 years and older.

How to read population pyramids

Males are on the left and females are on the right. The horizontal axis represents the population in thousands. The centre line marks 0 and each point represents five thousand (males to the left and females to the right). Each tier represents an age group. The lowest tier is for the youngest age group (0-4 years). As one moves up the pyramid, the age groups get older. The top tier (90+) includes all individuals aged 90 and over.

The predominance of women

  • This line graph focuses specifically on the female population per 100 males in four selected age group categories (55-64 to 85 years and over) for the years of 1996–2031.
