EU-27 population pyramids for 2001 and 2019 (number of women and men by age group)

When comparing the population pyramids of 2001 and 2019 (see Figure 2 below), it can be seen that both pyramids, already rather narrower at the bottom (meaning there are fewer people in the younger age groups), become even more mushroom-shaped, with their top parts (older age groups) being broader, due in part to people living longer on average than previously, and the lower parts becoming even narrower, due to decreasing fertility rates. However, the similar size of the bottom-two age bands shows that this trend has stabilised in recent years.
