Population Pyramids

A population pyramid can help us identify future needs based on population density by age. Assuming static in- and out-migration, we can use this data to predict needs for city and other resident services. Consider that in 5 years, the 0 – 5 year old age group will be 5 – 10 years old and be in the school system. In 10 years, most of our 65 – 69 year old age group will be retired and likely to need more medical services Compare the shape of the Lake City population pyramid to that of Minnesota and the US to see where our future needs may align or be different from the rest of the state and country.
