Active ageing and solidarity between generations - A statistical portrait of the European Union 2012.
Traduction en français : Vieillissement actif et solidarité entre génération. Un portrait statistique de l'Union Européenne 2012.
This publication is divided into six chapters that draw on a wide selection of official statistics supplemented by opinion surveys and other sources.
The first chapter provides details in relation to population ageing : setting the scene as regards the dynamics of demographic change, detailing the past, present and (projected) future structure of the EU's population.
The remaining chapters depict different stages and generations, as people move from the age groups in which employment is common (see Chapter 2) towards retirement and receiving a pension (see Chapter 3).
One of the main concerns of many older persons is the increased possibility of becoming sick or frail in older age : Chapter 4 presents information in relation to the demand for healthcare services, as well as the budgetary implications facing governments as their populations continue to age.
Once retired the spending patterns of older persons often change, both in terms of their levels of spending, as well as the types of goods and services that they purchase ; the consumption patterns of the'silver economy'are covered as part of Chapter 5, alongside aspects such as housing and living conditions.
The publication closes with information relating to the active participation of older generations within society, with a particular focus on inter-generational issues ; it also includes information on the leisure pursuits and social activities undertaken by older persons (see Chapter 6).
