different people structure in Yemen and Italy

The chart illustrates the percentage of different ages in the population of two countries(namely Yemen and Italy) in 2000 and projections for 2020.

For Yemen, the population structure is estimated to have a dramatic change in terms of people of teens and youths. Although consisting of 50.1% of the population in 2000, the percentage of people of 0-14 years old is projected to reduce by about 13%, taking up 37% in 2050. To the contrast, people of 15-59 years old, comprising 46.3% in 2000, will enlarge its portion considerably to 57.3% in 2050. However, the elderly who is more than 60 years old, showed a slight increase in percentage, 3.6% in 2000 and 5.7% with projections in 2050 respectively.

There was a total different picture in Italy. The elderly is predicted to take up 42.3% in 2050, rising by 18% compared with 24.1% in 2000, whereas people of 15-59 years old is likely to account for 46.2% in 2050, an almost 15% down over the same period. And people of 0-14 years old is estimated to take up the remaining 11.5% in 2050, a little down from 14.3% in 2000.

Overall, the population structure in developing and developed countries is significantly different, teens and youths taking up the most share in developing counties in the past and future, and teens and elderly in developed counties.
