Future of Indonesia: Trends & Age-Cohort Analysis
Indonesia, the world's fourth most populous country ... the population of Indonesia is projected to change from 243.4 million in 2010 to 300.2 million in 2050. How will Indonesia age-cohort patterns in 2010 compare to those projected for 2050? How do these patterns compare with those of the United States?
This section illustrates use of population pyramids to examine age by gender demographic patterns for Indonesia as of 2010 and 2050. Similar population pyramids can be developed for any country. Population pyramids help us visualize and more easily understand age-gender structure -- and how it is changing over time.

Indonesia Demographic Dynamics
The age and gender structure of a population is one of its most important and formative features, because nearly all demographic characteristics and processes vary by age and gender. Age and gender composition is also revealing in that it reflects those demographic characteristics and processes. Population pyramid chart graphics can help us visualize and more easily understand age-gender structure -- and how it is changing over time.
Population pyramids for 2010 and 2050 are shown below for Indonesia with associated popualtion by age-gender tabular data. Click graphic for larger view of supplemental Web page.
A top-heavy pyramid suggests negative population growth that might be due to many factors, including high death rates, low birthrates and increased emigration. A bottom-heavy pyramid suggests high birthrates, falling or stable death rates and potential for rapid population growth.
The population pyramid shows a male population bar chart (left side of pyramid, blue) symmetrically with a female population bar chart (right side of pyramid, light red). Each bar shows the population by 5-year age group, 0-4 years to 80-84 years and 85 years and over.
