The Global AgeWatch Index 2015 presents a unique snapshot of the situation of older people in 96 countries of the world today.
It highlights which countries are doing best for their older populations and how this links with policies towards pensions, health, education, employment and the social environment in which older people live.
As the number and proportion of older people increases at an unprecedented rate, our third report shows what works for older people but also highlights how much work needs to be done. This year the Index focuses on the regions, hearing from older people themselves and looking at the widely varying geographical trends.
