Bars are horizontal and can either show the percentage of the total population made up by a particular age-sex group, or they can show the actual number of people in each age group (your textbook has these examples). 1.

Color 3: The remaining rows (45-49 through over 74) (These three colors represent pre-reproductive, reproductive and post-reproductive ages ) 2.
