I am writing an article reporting the features of the ages of population. When I summarize the features of population of 0-14. I guess it is not natural to write from birth to 14 years. Is it more natural to use the world 'children'? Could you give better advice?

    "From birth to 14 years" sounds natural in English and is a fine way to say this. If you have a reason to avoid the word "birth," you could write "up to 14 years."

    Is it acceptable to write "population of people up to 14 years rise by 14%'? Is it strange?
