This report examines the opportunities and challenges
involved in gathering, analysing and making available to
decision-makers, practitioners, and older people themselves,
the high quality data needed to ensure the inclusion of older
populations in global development plans and policies.
It addresses both the potential and the limitations of the
data that is currently available and describes the range of
indicators needed to inform future policy action for the
wellbeing of older people in Bangladesh, China, India and Pakistan.
