Lemma 59.71.5. Let $f : X \to Y$ be a morphism of schemes. If $\mathcal{F}$ is a constructible sheaf of sets, abelian groups, or $\Lambda $-modules (with $\Lambda $ Noetherian) on $Y_{\acute{e}tale}$, the same is true for $f^{-1}\mathcal{F}$ on $X_{\acute{e}tale}$.

**Proof.**
By Lemma 59.71.4 this reduces to the case where $X$ and $Y$ are affine. By Lemma 59.71.2 it suffices to find a finite partition of $X$ by constructible locally closed subschemes such that $f^{-1}\mathcal{F}$ is finite locally constant on each of them. To find it we just pull back the partition of $Y$ adapted to $\mathcal{F}$ and use Lemma 59.64.2.
