Clearly, the structure of this question demands an introduction (overview) followed by two body paragraphs – one on Italy and another on Yemen. Let us proceed!

The given pie-charts present information on various age groups in Yemen and Italy in the year 2000 and projections for the year 2050. (23 words.)

In Yemen, the age group of 0 to 14 years constitutes 50 percent of the total population of the country in 2000 and it is expected to drop to 37 percent in 2050. On the contrary, the proportion of those between 15 to 59 years of age is expected to expand from 46 percent in 2000 to 57 percent in 2050. Those who are above 60 years of age form 4 percent of the population and will increase to 6 percent by 2050. (83 words.)

In Italy, those between 0 to 14 years are just 14 percent of the population in 2000 and will decrease by 2 percent in 2050. Though the people between 15 to 59 years of age form the largest percentage of total population, they will shrink to 42 percent in 2050. On the other hand, the age group 60 and above will expand from just 24 percent to become the largest group in 2050. (73 words.)
