  3. 3. Dependent Population
  4. 4. Dependent Population <ul><li>The dependency ratio is directly linked to a country’s age structure. </li></ul><ul><li>To calculate it, the population is split into economically active (15-64) and inactive (0-14 and 65+) </li></ul><ul><li>Dependency ratio is calculated as a % using: </li></ul>Number of economically active Number of non-economically active X 100
