Demography is a principal driving force for economic growth and social development. In Asia and Europe, more developed economies are facing aged or aging societies, while younger economies are experiencing rapid shifts in the age structures of their populations. Although demographic transition has occurred at different times in Asia and Europe, both regions have undergone comparable processes and patterns of change, with the impacts spanning across sectors and groups of people.
Demographic Transition and Its Impacts in Asia and Europe highlights crucial aspects of demographic transition subject to the different characteristics of economies in Asia and Europe. In response to rapid population aging, the book provides practical analysis and insights to help build comprehensive policy frameworks for a resilient economy and greater sustainable development.
