Population Age 0-24 in China, Europe, the United States of America and India, 1950-2050 (in 1000)

Note: Europe (48) see Glossary

Since the late 1990s India has more children and young people age 0-24 than China. In 2005 India had a population of about 593 million under 25 - as compared to 513 million in China.

In 2005, all of Europe had an under 25 population of only 217 million - much less than half of China or India.

With 106 million under age 25 in 2005, the United States of America had less than one fifth of the young people of India.

However, by far the largest number of young people under the age of 25 live in the countries and regions other than China, Europe, India or the United States of America - almost 1.65 billion. By the middle of the 21st century China, all of Europe, India, and the United States of America combined will have less than 1.2 billion young people under age 25, while the rest of the world will have more than 1.8 billion young people.
