(February 2018) The demographic dividend is often defined as the accelerated economic growth that can occur as a population age structure matures, given strategic investments in health, education, economic policy, and governance. This web feature, funded by the USAID through the Policy, Advocacy, and Communication Enhanced (PACE) Project, expands the concept of the demographic dividend to project sets of benefits in four sectors—child survival, education, economic development, and political stability—that can be achieved as countries pass through the demographic transition. The web feature also includes an interactive graph that maps a country’s likelihood of achieving a dividend to specific points in its demographic transition.
