  • The 2025 estimates are United Nations estimates at a constant fertility rate and constant mortality rate
  • By 2025 80% of the ASEAN 5 (Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand) population should be in the labor force
  • ASEAN 5 to see an increase in the share of the population in the labor force, Europe and US a decrease to 60% in 2025 compared to 68% in 2015
  • Larger share of the population in the labor force means more people contributing and fewer depending (children and elderly) on this group
