In this project you will explore the construction of 3 separate statistics using demographic data. This will be a

written project, no Excel. You will upload this written project in your Blackboard course.

The following ratios have been computed using the derivation rules for the United States in 2002:

? The age dependency ratio, 59.8, is derived by dividing the combined under-18 and 65-andover populations by the 18-to-64 population and multiplying by 100.

? The old-age dependency ratio, 19.3, is derived by dividing the population 65 and over by the

18-to-64 population and multiplying by 100.

? The child dependency ratio, 40.5, is derived by dividing the population under 18 by the 18-

to-64 population and multiplying by 100.

1. Determine the current populations, in the three different age categories used for these ratios, using

the census.gov webpage: https://www.census.gov/data/tables/2014/demo/age-and-sex/2014-age-sexcomposition.html by select age groups (use the Census table for “Age and Sex Composition”).

2. Compute the three different dependency ratios using the current population estimates and the derivation

rules above.

3. Are these ratios part-to-part or part-to-whole? Explain in one or two coherent sentences.

4. The article, Europeans Fear Crisis May Threaten Liberal Benefits,

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/23/world/europe/23europe.html?pagewanted=1&th&emc=th , contains

the following graphic. How does this graphic compare to the dependency ratios you computed in #2 above?
