Abstract: We review some of the traits of the Galactic disc and elaborate on the Milky Way's Warp, the recent studies investigating it, and its importance. We focus on the effect of this distortion on different age populations using a broad sample of young objects made up by Cepheids, masers, and HII regions. We attempt a fit on this sample and compare it to other populations models available in the literature. We find less agreement with the similar age population OB model than expected, although some general trends are shared among all the models plotted. We also compare the positions of objects in our sample with respect to a HI Model, but find no evidence regarding a warping trend with age.
