People worldwide are living longer. According to the World Health Organization, 1 in 6 people in the world will be aged 60 years or over by 2030. By 2050, the world’s population of people aged 60 years and older will double (2.1 billion). The number of individuals aged 65 years or above across the world will be twice the number of children under age 5 by the year 2050. That makes this population one of the fastest-growing groups in the world.
Below are some of the latest research and features on this growing population of older adults in the Seniors channel on Newswise.
