Active Ageing Index

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, and their capacity to age actively.

See a leaflet on AAI functionality and application.

More information on the Active Ageing Index is available on 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 containing detailed data sets on the AAI for the 28 European Union Member States. 

The wiki can be accessed here.

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.
