Which are the countries with the highest youth population? The developed countries like European countries are improving and developing in almost every way possible. But they are facing different kinds of problems. People who are having a lot of chances to have a good life and most of them do are losing the wish to start a family, although they have enough money to support one. More and more young couples are deciding that they don’t want to have children. So, the countries have new problems since there are few babies born, they are missing the young population which means they lack labor force. The problem deepens because when you are missing labor force, you have to import it. And that causes other problems because they don’t have formal education neither they know the language, which means that the country has to educate them which costs it huge amounts of money.
On the other hand, some less developed countries in Latin America, Africa or Asia don’t have this problem, because people tend to risk everything to have a family. This results in high unemployment rates in these countries, since the country does not have a budget to provide them jobs. Lack of money is not an obstacle for these people. So, in the end, we have a paradox of rich people who can financially support children don’t have them and the poor people who can’t financially support them end up having a lot of children.
The countries that have a high percentage of youth population usually have high unemployment rates. Overall, these countries are not providing them good life or any perspective future which is sad, because children are the future of any country.
