    An Ever- Aging Generation

    in Women

     
    Population ageing is a shift in the distribution of a country's population towards older ages. This is usually reflected in an increase in the population's mean and median ages, a decline in the proportion of the population composed of children, and a rise in the proportion of the population that is elderly. Population ageing is widespread across the world. It is most advanced in the most highly developed countries. Today we have a new phenomenon with aging. With the increase in technology, education, and overall progression we have many populations of our global community with an older community of the rise. This brings both benefits and problems to all and will be discussed on our show.
