My good friend Scott Brody noticed a typo in my comparison of Vietnam and China. Certainly, I have more than my share of typos, but this one was fairly relevant to a point I was stressing.
I was comparing the ages of the two populations and saying how much younger Vietnam was versus China. I wrote that the medium age of China was 25.5 years old when in fact China’s median age is 35.5 years old.
In other words, China’s median age is roughly 7.7 greater than Vietnam’s, not 2.3 years younger.
Thanks for the catch Scott!
