Mauritius's Age Dependency Ratio: Old

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.

Mauritius's age dependency ratio for elderly people was: 17.3% reported in 2019 (most recent observation). This is a lower value against a global average of 85.1%. A lower ratio indicates less financial burden is carried by working people, and consequently less government assistace required than dependents under the age of 15.
