The second European Demography Report has been published on 21 November 2008.
The Report is published every two years by the European Commission and provides the latest facts and figures that are needed to assess where Member States stand in responding to the challenges of demographic change. The 2008 report focuses on the ageing society and changing family and household patterns in the EU.
It will be presented at the second European Demography Forum on 24-25 November 2008 in Brussels. The Forum will be devoted to how EU countries can learn from one another to create better societies for families and older people. It will bring together policy makers and actors in the field, notably in workshops that will be reviewing examples of good practice in these two areas.
