About the product

The proportion of the world population aged 65 or over is estimated to have increased from 5 per cent in 1950 to 6 per cent in 1990 and is projected to reach 10 per cent in 2025. This report reviews past trends and future prospects of the age structure and considers age distribution in a broad framework of global and historical age structure changes.
