    When I first came to the DR as a kid in the late 60s, I remember how cool it was that there were more kids than grown ups. I wonder if I can find a graph of the change in median age. Back then, I expect it was under 20.

    Biggest % of the population, 5.1%, is 1 to 10 years of age, then they start to die off!!!!

    This does not necessarily indicate that people are dying at this or that age. It is more related to the number being born.

    Migration patterns also has an effect. Check the graph for United Arab Emirates.
