New: animated population pyramid
Our animated population pyramid gives you an overview of the population structure in Germany by age and sex. With this interactive application you can monitor the change of the age structure from 1950 to 2060, focussing on a specific age cohort. You may also view various age groups and their share in the overall population, the median age and the old-age dependency ratio.
From 2014 the application is based on the results of the 13th coordinated population projection for Germany. It comprises four selected variants with different assumptions about the future population development. You may "fix" one of the variants and then compare how the age structure would be altered, for instance, by higher migration and/or increasing fertility.
