• Abstract

    Since every country is going through distinct stages of demographic change over different periods, the demographic dividend has become a prevalent issue in the domain of economic review. The influence of the demographic dividend on economic growth remains a subject of debate; therefore, it is opportune to reexamine this topic. This systematic review with bibliometric assessment aims to add augmented insights to the current body of knowledge on the nexus between demographic dividends and economic growth. Hence, a total of 427 published documents from both the Scopus and Web of Science databases were assessed using the updated PRISMA flow diagram to classify the 24 relevant research publications. The bibliometric data from the 24 related articles were processed using VOSviewer to construct co-occurrence network maps. After critically analysing the identified papers, five thematic clusters were established. Accounting, behavioral, and human capital effects were recognised as broad themes based on the five clusters. Governments, policymakers, and stakeholders can use the findings of this study to make long-term decisions in the domain of demographic dividends and economic growth.
