Description


INTRODUCTION Ageing is a universal process which affects each human being in the world. The change from high fertility and mortality rates to low fertility and mortality rates has led to ageing which is a by-product of this demographic transition. One of the major features of this demographic transition is that there has been a considerable increase in the absolute and relative numbers of elderly people. The elderly population constitutes about 12 percent of the population of 7.3 billion people in the world. It has been predicted that the number of elderlies will double from 12 percent to 22 percent by the year 2050 (WHO, 2018).

Till now, this phenomenon has been more evident in developed countries but recently it is increasing more rapidly in developing countries as well. 70 percent of the total population of elderly live in the developing world and this will become 80 percent by the year 2050. Among those low and middle-income countries, India is also one of the country whose elderly population is increasing much faster than in the past. Further, the older population of the world is also ageing in itself, with the oldest old comprising more than 10 percent of the world's elderly. This demographic shift of a country's population towards older ages is known as population ageing.
