True. It is true that countries with older populations have more
retired people, who might edit our projects, countries which have
economic instability and suffering collapsing industry may have many
more unemployed people, who might edit our projects, and countries
with high levels of disability from childhood diseases may have more
people who cannot work but might edit our projects.

Whether these are things to encourage or not is a bit off topic for this list.
