Share of children aged between 0 and 14 years in Vietnam 2000-2020

In 2020, the share of children in Vietnam amounted to approximately 23.2 percent of the population. This figure is comparable to the share of children in Malaysia and Sri Lanka. The age dependency ratio in Vietnam was 43 percent.

Age structure in Vietnam

As of 2018, about 69.55 percent of the population was between 15 and 64 years old, followed by 7.27 percent of people aged 65 years and older. In 2019, there were about 68.08 million adults. According to the Central Population and Housing Census, every two persons in the working age group is dependent. This shows an increase of 13.3 percentage points since 2009, more than double the percentage of 1999.

Demographical change in Vietnam

Vietnam has a history of high fertility. Therefore, the age and gender distribution followed the usual pattern where the widest bars can be found at the bottom of the pyramid. However, the country’s number of births decreased in the last few decades, which is why the youngest bars are smaller than the ones above in the demographic pyramid, indicating a slower future population growth. As of 2018, the population density in Vietnam was at 308.13 people per square meter.
