Buy Article:


The old age support rates relate to the number of those who are capable of providing economic support to the number of older people that may be materially dependent on the support of others. The support rate indicator used here is the population aged 20 to 64 as a ratio of those aged 65 and over. The projections for old‐age support rates used here are based on the most recent "medium‐variant" population projections. They are drawn from the United Nations, World Population Prospects ‐ 2008 Revision.
