Romania: Dependent people as percent of the working age population: For that indicator, The World Bank provides data for Romania from 1960 to 2018. The average value for Romania during that period was 51.08 percent with a minumum of 45.08 percent in 2006 and a maximum of 58.7 percent in 1980. See the global rankings for that indicator or use the country comparator to compare trends over time.
The age dependency ratio for Romania is calculated as follows: Age dependency = (people younger than 15 and older than 64) / (working age people ages 15-64). A higher value for Romania and other countries means that employed people have to support more non-working people, either young or old.
Definition: Age dependency ratio is the ratio of dependents--people younger than 15 or older than 64--to the working-age population--those ages 15-64. Data are shown as the proportion of dependents per 100 working-age population.
