The age structure of a population provides a base for assessing present social and economic conditions as well as the starting point for predicting future population trends.
With an overall median age of 32.0 years, Omaha's population in 1950 (the unshaded population pyramid on page 3) had a sizeable proportion of its population of working age, but lacked school-age and young adult population. The four areas for which data were available paralleled the city's profile, with the closest match in the Northeast and Southeast.
