Population pyramid for races has different forms. For White Americans, African Americans and native Americans the structure looks like a pyramid with a stationary type of reproduction, where the shares of children and old age groups are almost balanced. For Asians the pyramid has a regressive type of reproduction, which is characterized by a relatively high share of elderly and old people and a modest share of children. And for two or more races population the pyramid is progressive or expanding, that is among people belonging to two or more races there is a high proportion of children and a low proportion of the older generation.
