Population ageing refers to a process whereby a population ages, i.e. the proportion of older persons in the population increases relative to that of younger persons, and the population’s median age increases. It is the result of socio-economic developments, with decreasing birth rate and increasing life expectancy. These developments have profound long-term demographic, social and economic implications.
