The largest Millennial population in the world as of the year 2015, is located in Asia with about 1,441 million people between the ages of 15 and 35, which is a very large number.
The second largest number is for Sub-Saharan Africa and it’s only 329 million people.
In the year 2030, how many people in these different regions of the world are they going to be between the ages of 15 and 35?
That number will be slightly smaller in Asia but it will be much, much bigger in Sub-Saharan Africa.
That’s of course, because today, fertility rates are very high in Sub-Saharan Africa. Whereas in Asia, it depends on which part of the continent you look at. If you look at Eastern Asia, including China, that number is dropping down quite quickly. Whereas if you look at South Asia especially India, the number is actually continuing to grow.
By the year 2030, India is going to have the largest millennial population.
That is to say the largest population between the ages of 15 and 35, 490 million young people in India.
In China, the number is going to be 312 million, but notice the evolution, comparing 2015 to the year 2030. In China today, there are 413 million people between the ages of 15 and 35.But by the year 2030, they’re only going to have 312 million.
That’s about a 100 million fewer students, for example, in high school.
In the U.S., the number of people between the ages of 15 and 35 will remain relatively stable at around 88 million people.
In other parts of Europe, in other parts of the world we’re going to see different changes.
How do you think this fact will impact the world?
