Budgetary challenges posed by ageing populations
This report focusses on budgetary challenges posed by ageing populations and reports on the impact on public spending on pensions, health and long-term care for the elderly and possible indicators of the long-term sustainablity of public finances.
It brings together the work undertaken in past two years by a group on ageing populations attached to the Economic Policy Committee.
• revised projections, up to 2050 for spending on public pensions: this follows an interim report examined by the Council on 6 November 2000, which was prepared under the Chairmanship of Professor Vittorio Grilli;
• projections for the impact of ageing population on public spending on health care and long-term care for the elderly;
• some indicators, which on the basis of the projections for age-related expenditures, could help in assessing the overall impact of ageing populations on the long-term sustainability of public finances.
