United States Virgin Islands population density

United States Virgin Islands population density is 303.5 people per square kilometer as of July 2017. Density of population is calculated as permanently settled population of United States Virgin Islands divided by total area of the country. Total area is the sum of land and water areas within international boundaries and coastlines of United States Virgin Islands.

United States Virgin Islands age structure

As of the beginning of 2017 according to our estimates United States Virgin Islands had the following population age distribution:

19.5 65.2 15.3

- percentage of population under 15
- percentage of population between 15 and 64 years old
- percentage of population 65+

In absolute figures (estimate):

We prepared a simplified model of the population distribution pyramid which is broken down into 3 main age groups. The groups are the same as we used above: population under 15, between 15 and 64 and population which is over 65 year old.

65+
15-64
0-14
male female

Note: The pyramid provided is not corresponding to data given above because the age groups have different number of years.

As we can see the United States Virgin Islands population pyramid has a stationary type. Countries with such type of pyramid usually have declining birth rate and relatively low death rate. Which is more common for developed countries.

Age dependency ratio

Dependency ratio of population is a ratio of people who are generally not in the labor force (the dependents) to workforce of a country (the productive part of population). The dependent part includes the population under 15 years old and people aged 65 and over. The productive part of population accordingly consists of population between 15 and 64 years.

This ratio shows the pressure on productive population produced by the dependent part of population.

The total dependency ratio of population in United States Virgin Islands is 53.4 %.

What does this value mean? It shows that the dependent part of population is more than a half of the working part. It means that the working population (labor force) in United States Virgin Islands must provide goods for itself and cover expenditure on children and aged persons (this population is more than a half of working population). The value of more than 50% shows that the pressure on productive population in United States Virgin Islands is relatively high.

Child dependency ratio

Child dependency ratio is a ratio of people below working age (under 15) to workforce of a country.

Child dependency ratio in United States Virgin Islands is 29.9 %.

Aged dependency ratio

Aged dependency ratio is a ratio of people above working age (65+) to workforce of a country.

Aged dependency ratio in United States Virgin Islands is 23.5 %.
