The Active Ageing Index is a tool to measure the untapped potential of older people for active and healthy ageing across countries. It measures the level to which older people live independent lives, participate in paid employment and social activities as well as their capacity to actively age.
More information on the Active Ageing Index is available at a special wiki dedicated to the index. The wiki provides information on the AAI conceptual framework, methodology and results. It also provides potential index users with access to an excel file that contains detailed data sets on the AAI for the 27 European Union Member States. A special policy brief that introduces the AAI is also available to download from the wiki.
The wiki is available at www1.unece.org/stat/platform/display/AAI/Active+Ageing+Index+Home
The AAI is a product of a joint project undertaken in 2012 by the UNECE Population Unit together with the European Commission Directorate General for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion and the European Centre for Social Welfare Policy and Research in Vienna.
