Armenia's Age Dependency Ratio: Young

THE AGE DEPENDENCY RATIO FOR YOUNG PEOPLE (%)


The young-age dependency ratio is the ratio of younger dependents (who are generally economically inactive and younger than 15 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 aging population.

Armenia's age dependency ratio for young people was: 69.4%, reported in 2019 (most recent observation). This is a high value against a global average of 44.7%. A higher ratio indicates more financial stress on working people and possible political instability.
