Demography Report 2010: Older, more numerous and diverse Europeans
The Demography Report 2010: Older, more numerous and diverse Europeans describes a Europe which has passed the 500 million population mark, with growth fuelled mainly by migration rather than fertility, and a population that is becoming progressively older and more diverse. This briefing, produced by EuroHealthNet, presents a summary of the key trends and messages, with special emphasis on issues relating to health.
Additional graphs have been produced to show how pension ages relate to healthy life years, and to illustrate how post-healthy life years form part of overall life expectancy. A series of policy messages are included at the end covering migration, ageing, family policy, employment and reconciliation of work and family life.
