Aubrey McMillan Env S 2 Perm: 8729469 Homework 1 1. Country A There seems to be a larger percentage of women in the population from ages 40 -80+ years. However, the younger generations, from 0-39 seem to contain a more even distribution of males and females, or even a population that favors males. The largest percentage of people in this country is from the 30-39 year old generation. Although there are fewer people in the older generations (40-80+) and in the younger generations (0-20), the difference in population between generations is not extremely drastic. The population seems to remain quite steady with age. The large number of people in their 30s may be due to a “baby-boom” generation. Country B The gender distribution in this country is quite even in every age range. However, the difference in population between generations is extremely drastic. The majority of the population consists of individuals from 0-9 years old. The population of each generation substantially decreases as age increases. Country C The elder generations (60-80+) consist of more females than males. The younger generations (0-49) contain more males than females. The 50-59 generation is quite evenly distributed between males and females. Individuals from ages 20-49 dominate the population of this country. There are less individuals in the younger and older generations (0-19 and 50-80+). However, the population does seem to remain quite steady with age. Perhaps the decrease in the populations of younger generations suggests a decline in growth rate. Thus, perhaps there was a baby-boom generation accounting for the larger percentage of individuals from ages 20-49. Country D Females, as previously noted, seem to dominate the older generations (50-80+), while males dominate the younger generations. The greatest percentage of the population is from 0-9 years old, and population decreases as the age of the generation increases. However, the decreases in population from generation to generation are not as
