Data and Visualizations

Data on aging and health is crucial to better understand older adults’ health status as well as their social and economic contributions and social capital. This is why strengthening data, research and innovation to accelerate implementation is one of the enablers of the Decade of Healthy Aging.

Data available on this observatory can provide a snapshot of the current available information that can be useful for prioritization and evaluation of public health interventions. Older people are not a homogenous group, nor does the aging process happen in the same way and speed in every country. Therefore, providing disaggregated data can help countries to prepare to the demographic shift and better address older adults needs.
