dc.description.abstract The size of the working age groups will peak in 2033 for ages 20-39 and in 2056 for ages 40-59. The fiscal support ratio drops steadily after 2024. This is the ratio of producers to consumers and an indicator of a potential “demographic dividend” – surplus generated by the economy that, if invested in health, education, and infrastructure, can move the economy permanently to a path of higher production, consumption and living standards. Some policy options to deal with a declining workforce are: delaying retirement to maintain productivity; closing the gender gap to maintain productivity; and increasing taxes to maintain fiscal balance. en
