In 2020, the age dependency ratio in Egypt was 61.6 percent, which means that roughly 62 people were among the age groups 0 to 14 years and 65 years and older per 100 working-age population (between 15 and 64 years).

In 2020, old-age dependency ratio (65+ per 15-64) for United States of America was 25.6 ratio. Old-age dependency ratio (65+ per 15-64) of United States of America increased from 16.4 ratio in 1971 to 25.6 ratio in 2020 growing at an average annual rate of 0.92%. What is old-age dependency ratio (65+ per 15-64)?
Breakdown of G20 countries with the highest age dependency ratio 2019. Japan had the highest age dependency ratio among G20 countries in 2019. The age dependency ratio is the population of those aged 0-14 and 65 and above as a share of the working age population aged 15-64.
A high dependency ratio means those of working age, and the overall economy, face a greater burden in supporting the aging population. The youth dependency ratio includes those only under 15, and the elderly dependency ratio focuses on those over 64.
The youth population is defined as those people aged less than15. The youth-dependency ratio relates the number of young persons that are likely to be dependent on the support of others for their daily needs to the number of those who are capable of providing such support.
By 2075 the dependency ratio is expected to reach 79 in Korea, 76 in Japan, 75 in Portugal and 73 in Greece. By contrast, Mexico and Turkey are the youngest countries, with dependency ratios of 11 and 13 respectively, followed by Chile, at 18.
The Fountain of Youth The youngest country in the world is Niger, where almost 50% of the population is below the age of 15.
The African country of Niger has the lowest median age in the world at just 14.8 years (14.5 years for males and 15.1 for females). In fact, the vast majority of the countries with median ages of under 20 are in Africa.
A high dependency ratio indicates that the economically active population and the overall economy face a greater burden to support and provide the social services needed by children and by older persons who are often economically dependent.
A high dependency ratio means that the ‘dependents’ in society are more reliant on a smaller number of working-aged people. For instance, there may be one dependent in society and the dependency ratio may be 10, which would suggest that there are 10 people providing for that dependent.
The dependency ratio is an age-population ratio of those typically not in the labor force (the dependent part ages 0 to 14 and 65+) and those typically in the labor force (the productive part ages 15 to 64). A low dependency ratio means that there are sufficient people working who can support the dependent population.
As per India’s Census 2011, Youth (15-24 years) in India constitutes one-fifth (19.1%) of India’s total population. India is expected to have 34.33% share of youth in total population by 2020.
You can calculate the ratio by adding together the percentage of children (aged under 15 years), and the older population (aged 65+), dividing that percentage by the working-age population (aged 15-64 years), multiplying that percentage by 100 so the ratio is expressed as the number of ‘dependents’ per 100 people aged
Dependent population is defined as that part of the population that does not work and relies on others for the goods and services they consume. In other studies, children include those in the population up to age 18 or 20 and those in the working ages limited to 59 years or younger.
