Age Dependency Ratio: Old

THE AGE DEPENDENCY RATIO FOR ELDERLY PEOPLE

The old-age dependency ratio is the ratio of elderly dependents (who are generally economically inactive and 65 years and older), compared to the number of people of working age (15-64-year-olds).

A high dependency ratio means those of working age, and the overall economy, face a greater burden in supporting the aging population.
