In this paper we present a projection of the future evolution of the population and of the dependency ratio in Spain. Several definitions of dependency ratios are derived, all with more economic content than the simple definition of this concept. Finally, the implications of these demographic changes for optimal consumption and saving behavior are analyzed by using, as analytical framework, a growth model with exogenous technical change. Este artículo presenta proyecciones de la población y la tasa de dependencia de la economía española basadas en escenarios alternativos. Los cálculos hacen uso de varias definiciones de la tasa de dependencia con mayor contenido económico que la definición más simple de este concepto. El artículo también presenta las implicaciones de cada una de las definiciones alternativas en función del escenario adoptado.
