Demographics are a key underlying economic indicator. Countries with a large populace in the working age groups will have more economic productivity (assuming jobs are available), with less dependents to support. Countries with ageing or greying populations have to foot larger medical bills, leading to bigger budgetary commitments and less to invest. Countries with young populations will enjoy economic growth assuming jobs are available. If there are not enough jobs to go around, social unrest is likely. Poorer countries tend to have larger rural populations, whereas economic growth and industrialization will bring the majority of residents into cities.
