The Global AgeWatch Index 2014 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.
This year, the Index Insight report has a special focus on income security. It looks at how different countries are responding to people's right to a secure income in later life, particularly by extending pension coverage.
