RPHC4 Thematic Report: Socio-Economic Status of Youth

The population of young people, their demographic characteristics and their employment situation, is one of the core themes in terms of achieving the development aims. According to the national youth policy, youth is defined as the population aged 14–35 and this is the group analysed in this thematic report.

Out of a total resident population of 10,515,973, there are 4,166,777 persons aged 14–35, representing 40% of the total resident population. The youth population shares are, however, considerably higher in urban areas. For instance, 53% of the resident population in urban Kigali City is 14–35 years.
