Australia's Aging Population

Posted on October 22, 2003 at 02:44 PM in Australia | Permalink

To see something rather disturbing, have a look at how the US Census Bureau estimates the Australian Population will break down, by age, in the year 2050 based on current trends:

Australian Population By Age in 2050

(via kottke)

You think that the health and welfare systems are overstreched now? Have a think about what it will be like when the 80+ age bracket out-number every other age group (by about half on these estimates).
