Russia: Dependent people as percent of the working age population: For that indicator, The World Bank provides data for Russia from 1960 to 2017. The average value for Russia during that period was 47.69 percent with a minumum of 38.78 percent in 2009 and a maximum of 58.43 percent in 1962. See the global rankings for that indicator or use the country comparator to compare trends over time.
The age dependency ratio for Russia is calculated as follows: Age dependency = (people younger than 15 and older than 64) / (working age people ages 15-64). A higher value for Russia 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.
