    Good article to explain the significance
    Youth Bulge: A Demographic Dividend or a Demographic Bomb in Developing Countries? | Let's Talk Development
    The youth bulge is a common phenomenon in many developing countries, and in particular, in the least developed countries. It is often due to a stage of development where a country achieves success in reducing infant mortality but mothers still have a high fertility rate. The result is that a large share of the population is comprised of children and young adults, and today’s children are tomorrow’s young adults.

    The share of the population in the 15 to 29 age bracket is about 7 percentage points higher for the less developed world than the more developed regions. In Africa (both Sub-Saharan and North Africa), we see that about 40 percent of the population is under 15, and nearly 70 percent is under 30.

    If the increase in the number of working age individuals can be fully employed in productive activities, other things being equal, the level of average income per capita should increase as a result. The youth bulge will become a demographic dividend. However, if a large cohort of young people cannot find employment and earn satisfactory income, the youth bulge will become a demographic bomb, because a large mass of frustrated youth is likely to become a potential source of social and political instability1.Therefore, one basic measure of a country’s success in turning the youth bulge into a demographic dividend is the youth (un)employment rate.

    Since initiating economic reforms since the late 1970, China has been able to generate millions of new jobs while also relocating young workers from lower productivity agricultural activities to higher productivity manufacturing—all without experiencing high unemployment among the youthful labor force.

    How the world’s populations are changing, in one map - The Washington Post

    Check out the second graph. It really shows how the population of Africa is increasing compared to the Western population.

    Some countries in Europe (Spain/Germany), Asia (Japan) and North America (Canada) are being hit hard by population decline....

    By 2100, Belize will outpopulate all "BWI" countries except Jamaica and Trinidad. I just hope it will not be considered a Latin American country by then though, and not a country populated by Guatem-aliens.

    I didn't even notice that you can change the year.

    I think that most "Western" countries are going to have that pattern, though, so don't worry.
