     I.2.1 Population Composition by School-Age, Working Age Dependent Age group and Sex

The population of Lebak age group reveals a dominance of young population. Child Dependency was pegged at 78.93 %. It denotes the child dependency burden and the number of young dependents that are being supported by 100 persons in the age group 15 to 64.

            Old age dependency ratio was placed at 5 elderly dependents per 100 persons in the working ages; the old age dependency ratio tends to be more elevated in the economically advanced area because of low fertility which results in the increase in the number of the elderly relative to the other age groups of the population. This should be expected because of the aging of the population due to the increasingly less number of children.

I.2.12 Projected School-Age Population, Labor Force, and Dependent Population

 

The population of Lebak age group reveals a dominance of young population. Child Dependency was pegged at 78.93 %. It denotes the child dependency burden and the number of young dependents that are being supported by 100 persons in the age group 15-64.

Old age dependency ratio was placed at 5 elderly dependents per 100 persons in the working ages. The old age ratio tends to be more elevated in the economically advanced areas because of low fertility which results in the increase in the number of the elderly relative to the other age groups of the population. This should be expected because of the aging of the population due to the increasingly less number of children.
