Ageing, fast and slow: When place and demography collide

This report by the Resolution Foundation describes differences in ageing by geography, with some places getting older and some getting younger.

It seeks to understand the drivers of those differences and to examine the implications for politics and policy in relation to increasing demographic divergence. For example, it questions how we meet the costs of an ageing society as the baby boomers enter old age, while ensuring living standards progress for younger generations coming behind. It suggests that Britain’s demographic divergence means an understanding of the evolving role of place and regional and local age-profile variations are crucial to meeting this challenge.
