Being able to create population pyramids is important for Geography students. The Australian Bureau of Statistics has an interactive Australian population pyramid which displays data from 1971 to predictions for 2061 http://www.abs.gov.au/websitedbs/d3310114.nsf/home/Population%20Pyramid%20-%20Australia.
Students can use it to see what will happen to their age cohort. Once students have a feel for population pyramids they would then be able to create them for any country using a spreadsheet, see link below:
