The graph below shows the percentage of dependents in 2000 and the predicted figures in 2050 in five countries, and also gives the world average. Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main figures and make comparisons where relevant.

The given column graph illustrates the share of dependents (children below 15 or
adults above 65) in five countries in 2000 and also gives projections for 2050. It also depicts
the world average in the given two years.

In 2000, India had the maximum percentage of dependents (38%), with Japan, Indonesia and
China following closely behind with around 34% of dependents. Korea had the least
percentage of reliant people (22%). The overall world population of youngsters below 15 and
adults over 65 was 25%.

Looking into the longer term , a rise within the population of dependents is predicted for
Indonesia, Korea, China and Japan. In contrast, in India the needy population is assumed to
fall from 38% to 32%. In Korea the population is expected to double by 2050, from 22% to
44%. Approximately 15% rise in such population is predicted for Japan, whereas China is
thought to show the least increase (2%). The world average of the dependents is expected to
go up from about 25% to nearly 42%.

Overall, the share of dependents is predicted to decrease in India whereas in other four
countries it is projected to increase.
(Note the language for the longer term and therefore the synonyms for dependents)
