Introduction

We work to promote policy dialogue on various facets of demographic change across the UNECE region, with a particular focus on ageing.

Key areas of work

In focus

The 2018 Active Ageing Index Analytical report jointly launched by UNECE and the European Commission shows that since 2008 most countries in the European Union have improved their overall AAI scores.

Progress has been strongest for women. The report presents the latest AAI calculations and progress over time. The Active Ageing Index is a practical tool for policymakers that helps identify areas in which older people's potential for active ageing is not yet fully realised.

It measures the level of which older people live independent lives, participate in paid employment and social activities as well as their capacity to actively age. The index is constructed from 22 individual indicators that are grouped into four domains. Each domain reflects a different aspect of active ageing. AAI also offers breakdown of results by sex to highlight the differences in active agein for men and women.
