Here's how the visual representation looks like (image)

The comment at the end of the visual:
Singapore's population has grown older over the years. The age pyramid shows the population ageing since 2000, with the number of residents in the older age groups increasing significantly. The median age of the resident population rose from 34.0 years in 2000 to 38.4 years in 2012.


Inaugurated in January 2011, the National Population and Talent Division (NPTD) strives to achieve a sustainable, connected and integrated population for Singapore. NPTD drives the coordination and implementation of population and talent policies across Government agencies. These include policies in the areas of population augmentation, supporting marriage and parenthood, talent attraction and retention, immigration and naturalisation, integration of newcomers, and engaging overseas Singaporeans.

As a team, after viewing the animated visual representation,
discuss, what are other information can we draw out from the population pyramid that NPTD would find useful in its planning and policy implementation?
