The charts illustrate the populations' ages and expectations of them in Yemen and Italy in 2000 and 2025.
In the first charts, the rate of younger people aged from 0 to 14 years are expected to decrease from 50% to 37%, while the percent of aged people between 15 to 59 years would increase by 11%. The percent of elderly who are over 60 years old are expected to increase by 1.1% which is the least change expected by 2050 in Yemen.
In Italy, the remarkable change would be in the age between 15 to 59 years old (middle age) in which the figures expected to decline to 46.2 % from 61.6%. However, the proportion of aged people over 60 years are expected by far the most increase by approximately 20%. The youngest people rate would be expected at 11.5% in 2050.
To sum up, in both countries, it can be seen that the percentage of oldest people would increase while that of youngest children may decrease by 2050. However the changes in the rate of middle age people show conversely in two countries.
