Abstract The changing age profile of the world's population is now a well-established fact. Research carried out by the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs demonstrates that by 2050, 22.1% of the world's population will be aged 60 years or older (in 2000 it was only 10%). However, a closer look at those statistics reveals that the situation in developed and developing countries is quite different. For example, in Europe in 2000, 19% of the population was already aged 60 or over, while in Asia this was only 8%(United Nations, 1998). Even within the OECD countries (taking, for example, Turkey, Mexico and the United Kingdom), there are differences in demographics.
