Lucy Culpepper – People are living longer, but much of the world is not prepared to provide a high quality of life to its surging old-age population, according to a new UN-backed report.
Global AgeWatch Index 2013 analyzes data from 91 countries, providing a country-by-country report on key factors affecting the world’s growing 60+ population, and where that population is best placed to live.
Interestingly, the research shows that money does not mean everything. The fastest ageing G20 countries–India, Indonesia, Mexico, Russia, and Turkey, where older populations are set to more than double over the next 40 years—are in the bottom half of the Index.
