“Demography of aging” is the statistical study of human populations at old age (65 and over). It encompasses the study of the size, structure and distribution of these populations, and spatial and/or temporal changes in them in response to aging and death. Demography of aging is a part of a medical demography that applies demographic concepts, models, and techniques to the analysis of the dynamics of morbidity, disability, and mortality of older populations. It is concerned with the consequences of health, disease, disability, and death for the size, composition, and structure of aging populations, and with the economic, social, and policy impacts of those dynamics.
