Dependency Ratio of the Lebanese Society

This visualization shows the comparison of the dependency ratios of old age as well as children between several middle eastern countries.

It is seen that the child dependency ratio is not that high in Lebanon, but we chose to focus more on the old-age dependency. As seen in the visualization above, Old age dependency in Lebanon is 10.08, which is neither the best nor the worse in comparison to others in the region. But the good thing is that the elderly are still active in the economy, this can help boost the economic state in Lebanon if treated properly.

It is clear that Lebanon has an export deficiency problem, with a percentage of imports double the percentage of exports, which is in turn way below the region median.
