Economic dependency ratio


Indicator calculated based upon data from Eurostat on (1) total population at the end of the year, and (2) persons employed, all age groups. For Russia, persons employed only age group 15-72 years.


The indicator is available for ESPON Space; however, regional data on employed persons have not been reliable for some countries (Italy, Iceland); thus further investigations are needed.


Updates as soon as updated population figures and data on employed persons are available.
