Abstract: Changes in population age structure are occurring more quickly today than at any time in human history, posing both opportunities and challenges for policymakers. Policymakers need to understand the likely consequences of demographic change in their own societies in order to develop sustainable programs in areas of healthcare, education, pensions and policies that foster economic growth and generational equity.
To help fill this information need, the NTA project has initiated a series of short publications that summarize the results of NTA research for a broad policy audience. The first issue, published in January 2011, describes the project and highlights selected findings from four countries on labor income, consumption, transfers between generations, and the use of asset income. This new series is being produced with support from the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) of Canada.
