The AGIR project: Ageing, Health and Retirement in Europe - Bio-demographic aspects of ageing: Data for Belgium [ Working Paper 10-03 - ]

This Working Paper reflects the contribution of the fpb to the first work package of the agir project, organized by the Spanish fedea. It thoroughly studies the bio-demographic aspects of population ageing. The aim is to get a better understanding of the nature of ageing. Not only is it important to analyse how fast a population gets older, it is also important to see what effect age has on the population’s health and fitness, especially of the elderly.

Working Papers

The Working Paper presents a study or analysis conducted by the Federal Planning Bureau on its own initiative.

This work package concentrates on the health status of different age cohorts, by confronting purely demographic data with data on the health of the population and indicators concerning the quality of life. By doing so, one should get a better view on the past development, the current state and the potential future development of the health of the elderly.

The output of this work package will be used in further work packages in the second phase of the program, in which scenarios will be produced and consequences for demand for health care and pension decisions will be studied.
