Peru, IL population by age cohort

To better understand the age distribution of Peru, IL's population, we divided it into the following 3 cohorts:

  • Children : Under the age of 18 years
  • Adults (working population): Between the age of 18 and 64 years
  • Seniors: 65 years and above
The pie chart shows Peru's population divided into segments, with each segment representing an age cohort. The area of each segment is in the same proportion of a circle as the population of the cohort is of the total population.
