Measuring the Adaptation of Countries to Societal Aging

Register Now! [Reception to follow]

With  global aging,  increasing attention has been drawn to ways in which various countries may be adapting (or not) to the increases in their population of older persons. Such adaptations occur across many sectors of society, including social and financial supports, health care, labor force and the like. The Network on an Aging Society has developed a multi-sectoral Index of Societal Aging which provides a quantitative measure of the degree to which a country is adapting with respect to several factors of central importance to the capacity individuals to age successfully.  This Index can be used to estimate the effect of current and future policy changes and facilitates cross national comparisons.
