CoverAgeing Europe — Looking at the lives of older people in the EU — 2020 edition

This second edition of Ageing Europe — looking at the lives of older people in the EU provides a broad range of statistics that describe the everyday lives of the European Union’s (EU) older generations. Figures covering the total population do not always reveal the full and sometimes complex picture of what is happening at a more detailed level within society. Looking at various socioeconomic statistics by age promotes a better understanding of intergenerational differences and also allows us to draw a detailed picture of the daily lives of older people across the EU. New to this edition is an added gender dimension to many of the statistical indicators.

Population ageing is a phenomenon that affects almost every developed country in the world, with both the number and proportion of older people growing across the globe. This transformation is likely to have a considerable impact on most aspects of society and the economy, including housing, healthcare and social protection, labour markets, the demand for goods and services, macroeconomic and fiscal sustainability, family structures and intergenerational ties.

La Comisión Europea ha adoptado hoy su primer informe sobre el impacto del cambio demográfico. Este informe presenta las causas de este cambio a largo plazo y su repercusión en toda Europa. También destaca los vínculos entre las estructuras demográficas, la repercusión y el potencial de recuperación de la crisis.

El informe muestra las tendencias demográficas a largo plazo en las regiones de Europa, desde una mayor esperanza de vida, hasta la reducción de las tasas de natalidad, el envejecimiento de las sociedades, los hogares más pequeños y la urbanización creciente. También refleja la disminución de la proporción de Europa en la población mundial, que se espera represente menos del 4 % de la población mundial en 2070. El informe saca a la luz las considerables diferencias en el cambio demográfico entre las regiones, así como la necesidad de abordar su impacto en el crecimiento y la sostenibilidad, el empleo, la salud y los cuidados de larga duración en diferentes partes de Europa. 

El informe da inicio al trabajo de la Comisión en este ámbito y ayudará a determinar la mejor forma de apoyar a los ciudadanos, las regiones y las comunidades más afectadas. En particular, constituirá la base para el futuro Libro Verde sobre el envejecimiento y la visión a largo plazo para las zonas rurales.  | RAPID, IP/20/1056, 17.6.2020

CoverEU legislation on the 2021 population and housing censuses — explanatory notes

Censuses provide a precise and geographically detailed account of population characteristics. This makes them a rich source for analysis, providing key inputs for policy, administration and research. At the EU level, national results are of greater value if they can be compared between Member States, so the EU has been taking continuous steps to harmonise outputs.

The 2021 round also comes at a time of fundamental transition: administrative data sources have become the backbone of the next census in most Member States. This brings efficiency gains, leading to more powerful census systems and addressing fast-evolving user expectations, where the regional detail is increasingly important. A dedicated law to publish key census topics on an EU-wide 1 km² grid is a major innovation here. It will allow for much more flexible analysis, even at cross-border level, tailored to research or policy needs. This publication explains the EU legislation for the 2021 census round, with a focus on the new grid data. [+]
