The 2015 Ageing Report: Economic and budgetary projections for the 28 EU Member States (2013-2060)


Over the coming decades, as Europeans live longer and have fewer children, Europe's population will turn increasingly grey'. Demographic trends also mean that the proportion of workers supporting those in retirement will halve from an average of four today, to just two, by 2060. The 2015 Ageing Report sheds light on the economic, budgetary and societal challenges that policy makers will have to face in the future as a result of these trends. The report's long-term projections provide an indication of the timing and scale of challenges that can be expected so as to inform European policy makers about the scale and timing of the challenges they must face.
