First impressions are more important. Some people think that doing well in interviews is the key to securing good job? To what extent do you agree?

The pie chart illustrates the proportions of the population in Yemen and Italy according to 3 different
age
groups in 2000, with a future estimate for 2050. It can be seen that in both countries, the general trend is for the prediction of an
increase
in the population of people aged 60+ and a decline in those aged 0-14 years 2050. Looking at Yemen in 2000, about half of the population aged 0-14 but
this
is predicted to decline by 13% by 2050.
Conversely
, the 60+
age
group
will
increase
by 2% in 2050 to 5.7%.
Likewise
, those aged 15-59 years are expected to
increase
from 46.3% to 57.3%. Turning to Italy in 2000, there was a similar
increase
predicted for the 60-plus
age
group
; from around 24% in 2000 to 42.3% in 2050. The
age
group
-0-14, as in Yemen, is expected to decrease by around 3% in 2050 to 11.5%. Those aged 15-59 years are expected to drop around 15% to 46.2%. To conclude, in Yemen and Italy we hope to observe an
increase
in the elderly in 60+ by 2050.
Instead
, it is predicted that the 0-14
age
group
will plummet by 2050.
