India’s working-age population

By 2050, India will beat China to become home to the most number of working-age people in the Asia Pacific region.

From 0.86 billion people aged between 15 and 64 years in 2015, India’s working-age population will grow to over a billion by 2050.

China and India comprised 62% of the region’s share in 2015, with one billion and 0.86 billion workers, respectively,” the report says. “But China’s share of working-age people is now falling, while India’s continues to rise, expected to touch a maximum of about 1.1 billion in 2050.
