Denmark's Age Dependency Ratio: Total

AGE DEPENDENCY RATIO FOR ALL PEOPLE (%)


The total age dependency ratio is the ratio of young + elderly dependents (who are generally economically inactive, under 15 or over 64 years old), 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 dependent population.

Denmark's age dependency ratio for the dependent population was: 57.3% reported in 2019 (most recent observation). This is a high value against a global average of 40.1%. A higher ratio indicates more financial stress on working people and possible political instability.
