Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The aim of this paper is to describe the level and trends of demographic ageing in European Union after its expansion. The analysis of the state and process of this phenomenon was conducted according to the intra-regional division of countries and was based on data obtained from Eurostat from the years 1993-2003. In the end an attempt was taken to show perspectives in respect to ageing up to 2025. The dynamics of the process was determined with the help of the dynamic ageing index (Wsd). In this way different population ageing types were obtained which were given the following names : A- older with rapid ageing, B- older with slower ageing, C- older with rejuvenation, D- younger with rapid ageing, E- younger with slower ageing, F- younger with rejuvenation. - (BJ)
