UN Report : India has world's largest youth population

According to The United Nations Population Fund's State of the World's Population Report, with 356 million 10 – 24 year olds, India has the world's largest youth population despite having a smaller overall population than China. China is second with 269 million young people, followed by Indonesia, the US, Pakistan, Nigeria, Brazil and Bangladesh. The report said developing countries with large youth populations could see their economies soar, provided they invest in young people's education and health and protect their rights. The report said 28 percent of India's population are youths, and globally the number of youths is the highest it has ever been, with 1.8 billion people between the ages of 10 and 24 years, 9 in 10 of which live in less developed countries.
