Supplementary notes

* Forecast.

The dependency ratio denotes the relationship between economic dependent age groups (people who are either too old or too young to work) to those of a working age. Those who are defined as being able to work, by the source, are those between the ages of 15 and 64. The dependency ratio indicates how great a burden is placed on those of a working age by those of a non-working age. The old-age dependency rate is even higher considering the current retirement age of 60 for men, 55 for female civil servants and 50 for other female workers.

For statistical purposes, the data apply to mainland China only, not including Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan.

Estimated figures from 2030 to 2100 have been based on a medium variant model.
