A measure of the portion of a population which is composed of dependents (people...
ratio of (potentially) economically active population to the retired population and children under 16 years of age. Aged dependency ratio is the ratio of the economically active to the retired population.
the number of people below age 15 and above 65 years of age expressed as a percentage of those aged 15 to 65 (working age)
a rough estimate of the number of dependents per worker. The ratio is computed by dividing the number of people who are most likely to be dependent (those under age 19 plus those over 64) by the number of people in the working-aged population (ages 19 through 64).
The ratio of the dependent age population (ages 0-14 and 65+) to working age population (ages 15-64). The dependency ratio provides an indication of the burden (or lack thereof) that certain age structures place on a population. The higher the ratio is, the more people each worker supports. In addition, because not every person of working age actually works, high dependency ratios imply even heavier burdens on those who do work than the ratio suggests.
The fraction of a population that is "dependent" on the rest of the population. In the human population, this has generally been considered to be the fraction under 15 years plus the fraction over 65 years.
Population aged less than 15 and over 65 (dependent population), divided by the population aged 15 to 64 (productive population)
The dependency ratio is calculated as the number of young and elderly residents per 100 residents aged 20 to 64.
The ratio of those who do not work for money, i.e., normally children, old people and some married women, to those who work.
The ratio of economically dependent people (defined as under 15 or over 64) to economically productive people (ages 15-64) in a given population. Also known as the age-dependency ratio.
The ratio of the population defined as dependent - those under 15 and over 65 - to the working-age population, aged 15â€“64.
The number of nonworking members compared to working members for a given population.
The proportion of the population dependent on the adult population. For youth dependent, the under 18 population is divided by the age group between 18 and 65. For elderly dependent, the population over 64 is divided by the age group between 18 and 65. Use your browser's back button to return from whence you came.
The ratio of the economically dependent part of the population to the productive part; arbitrarily defined as the ratio of the elderly (ages 65 and older) plus the young (under age 15) to the population in the working ages (ages 15-64)
In economics, the dependency ratio is the ratio of the economically dependent part of the population, to the productive part. The economically dependent part is recognised to be children who are too young to work, and individuals that are too old, that is, generally, individuals under the age of 15 and over the age of 65. The productive part makes up the gap in between (ages 15 - 64).
