It would be interesting to see countries with highest percentage of population under 15.

Not that interesting or surprising really. Just another "name every subSaharan African country you can think of + Afghanistan" quiz. Only surprise is East Timor.

No... I mean Afghanistan. When you're looking at countries with extremely low development, high mortality rates, high poverty, etc... almost all of them are sub-Saharan African countries. But Afghanistan always makes the list, usually in the top 5 or top 10. They stand far apart from the rest of Asia. and they are on the quiz that I was talking about. On THIS quiz, Pakistan only makes the cut because there are so many people living in Pakistan.

Russia?! I thought they had a phenomenally low birthrate. How do they chart?

At 16% Russia is even lower than China with the one child policy. Note that another population giant Japan does not even make the list.

Yes, Japanese birth rates are under death rates, and have been for I think 5-6 years or so.

They chart based on pure size, not percentage. There are still a lot of people living in Russia!

Why does Uganda's % have an ! after 48? Is that on purpose?

Nov 22, 2016
I think it's to add to the shock value, (Uganda is actually expected to become one of the most populated countries by 2050, due to its amazingly high birth rates).

Yeah, 1.24*10^61% seems a bit too high.

because it's so wildly huge, almost 50 percent! within the next 100 years, it's expected to be of the 10 most populous countries!!

It’ll take 10 generations or more to realise that having lots of sons is not a good ‘pension scheme’ when they are all starving too.

That's not how it tends to work with birth rates, though, because the higher the infant mortality rate, or mortality rate in general, the more children people tend to have, in the hope of a few surviving.

This is due in part to the AIDS epidemic, as well. Although that's another reason for condoms.

Didn't pay attention to the quiz parameters. I was thinking it was highest percentage of population, not just raw numbers. Explains why I was missing so many 🤦‍♀️

The numbers in this quiz don't match up. It says 21 million Ugandans are under 15, but 48!% implies that the total number of Ugandans under 15 is 5.32 x 10^68 or approximately 67,778,398,300,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (67.8 octodecillion) times the population of the world. Which points to some strange stuff happening in Uganda. Maybe some sort of overlap of multiple universes or something?
