  • YOUTHFUL POPULATION
    • ADVANTAGES
      • There is a large active workforce which will help economic growth in the future.
      • There are many children to look after their parents so money doesn't need to be spent on healthcare.
    • DISADVANTAGES
      • Large amount of under 16s in LICs (Low Income Countries) puts a strain on the economy, particularly with food, health and education.
      • High unemployment as there's lots of people of working age but not enough jobs.
      • Childhood diseases such as measles and diarrhoea can be fatal as there are less hospitals and doctors in LICs.
    • A high population of young people below the age of 16 or 19.
