This EuroMonitor report looks at the world through the prism of its young populations.

The proportion of population aged below 30 in the global population stood at 50% in 2012, down from 62% in 1980.

We are all aware of the much discussed issue of ageing. I am not sure if that is easier to solve than the one of too many young.
