However, how to construct a population pyramid in Excel and to knowledgeably analyze the population pyramid is quite a big challenge to both teachers and students in learning population geography. This paper focuses on guidelines for a method of constructing population pyramids in Excel 2007 - 2013 in two different ways: the simplest one is to draw a population pyramid with a vertical axis shared by both men and women; the second one is more complex in that two horizontal bar charts representing both genders respectively are drawn and turned their backs to one another.
