Australia's older generation (those aged 65 and over) continues to grow and is projected to more than double by 2057. The ageing of the population creates both pressures and opportunities for Australia's health and welfare sectors.
More reports and statistics on older people can be found under Aged care, Dementia, Life expectancy & deaths and Palliative care services.
