The share of older people (aged 65+) in the EU is set to increase from 20,3% in 2019 to 31,3% in 2100. Policies on active and healthy ageing are thus vital. The study requested by EMPL committee focuses on active ageing policies and access to services for the ageing population in the EU-27 in five areas: economic activity, social participation, health and well-being, long-term care, and supportive environments including housing, transport, and securing financial independence.
