Demographic outlook for the European Union 2019

03-06-2019

This paper is the second in a series that EPRS is producing on the demographic outlook for the European Union (EU). Demography matters. The economy, labour market, healthcare, pensions, the environment, intergenerational fairness and election results – they are all driven by demography. The EU has seen its population grow substantially – by around a quarter since 1960 – and currently stands at over 500 million people. However, it is now beginning to stagnate, before its expected decline from around ...

This paper is the second in a series that EPRS is producing on the demographic outlook for the European Union (EU). Demography matters. The economy, labour market, healthcare, pensions, the environment, intergenerational fairness and election results – they are all driven by demography. The EU has seen its population grow substantially – by around a quarter since 1960 – and currently stands at over 500 million people. However, it is now beginning to stagnate, before its expected decline from around the middle of the century. With the world population having risen still more substantially and growth continuing, the EU represents a shrinking proportion of this population. The EU population is also ageing dramatically, as life expectancy increases and fertility rates fall below their levels in the past. This has serious implications across a range of areas including the economy, healthcare and pensions. Free movement within the EU and migration from third countries also play an important role in shaping demography in individual Member States and regions. The 'in-focus' section of this year's edition looks at pensions. It highlights that, whilst national reforms have largely successfully addressed issues around the sustainability of pension systems, concerns about the adequacy of pensions, particularly in the future, still remain.

Living in the EU: Demography

30-04-2019

Important effects of the ageing of its population will influence the future of the European Union (EU). The population is dramatically ageing, driven both by significant increases in life expectancy and by lower fertility rates than in the past. Population growth is therefore slowing down, along with an increasing old-age dependency ratio. Free movement within the EU, in particular east-west movement of EU citizens, has increased, reducing the population of some Member States, while increasing that ...

Important effects of the ageing of its population will influence the future of the European Union (EU). The population is dramatically ageing, driven both by significant increases in life expectancy and by lower fertility rates than in the past. Population growth is therefore slowing down, along with an increasing old-age dependency ratio. Free movement within the EU, in particular east-west movement of EU citizens, has increased, reducing the population of some Member States, while increasing that of others. These changes have serious implications across a range of areas, including the economy, labour market, healthcare and pensions. Hence, they deserve in-depth analysis.

Demographic trends in EU regions

29-01-2019

The European Union has seen its population grow substantially – by around a quarter in the five and a half decades since 1960 – to a current level of over 500 million people. However, this population is now growing too slowly, and is even expected to decline in the longer term. Issues of demography are likely to have a considerable impact on EU society. Most models used for analysing population trends suggest that, in the coming years, the EU's population will continue to age as a result of consistently ...

The European Union has seen its population grow substantially – by around a quarter in the five and a half decades since 1960 – to a current level of over 500 million people. However, this population is now growing too slowly, and is even expected to decline in the longer term. Issues of demography are likely to have a considerable impact on EU society. Most models used for analysing population trends suggest that, in the coming years, the EU's population will continue to age as a result of consistently low levels of fertility and extended longevity. Although migration may play an important role in the population dynamics within many of the EU Member States, it is unlikely that it can reverse the ongoing trend of population ageing. Demographic developments have various implications for European regions. Some of them, especially rural and remote ones, are experiencing a considerable decline in population numbers. This situation may further exacerbate the economic decline regions are already facing, and thereby widen the gap between wealthy and poor ones. Therefore, demography also severely affects the social, economic and territorial cohesion of the EU. On the other hand, the heavy concentration of population in urban centres also creates certain negative consequences, such as pollution and lack of affordable housing. Recent migration trends have improved the demographic balance in various EU regions; that said, migration affects EU regions in an uneven manner. The European structural and investment funds are mainly used for boosting economic growth in European regions, but they may also serve, in combination with other EU funds, to address issues stemming from demographic challenges. The EU also uses a number of instruments to address migration-related issues in its territories most affected by the issue.

Regioner på tillbakagång : ett nytt demografiskt och territoriellt paradigm

16-06-2008

EU utgör i dag tillsammans med Ryssland och Japan den del av världen som under kommande år torde uppleva den svagaste befolkningstillväxten. Vid sidan av den utrikespolitiska aspekten har denna utveckling även betydelse för den regionala och lokala utvecklingen. All politik med anknytning till ekonomisk, social och territoriell sammanhållning berörs alltså av samtida demografiska förhållanden. En befolkningsminskning på regionnivå bidrar till och sammanfaller ibland med de problem i fråga om utvecklingsskillnader ...

EU utgör i dag tillsammans med Ryssland och Japan den del av världen som under kommande år torde uppleva den svagaste befolkningstillväxten. Vid sidan av den utrikespolitiska aspekten har denna utveckling även betydelse för den regionala och lokala utvecklingen. All politik med anknytning till ekonomisk, social och territoriell sammanhållning berörs alltså av samtida demografiska förhållanden. En befolkningsminskning på regionnivå bidrar till och sammanfaller ibland med de problem i fråga om utvecklingsskillnader som av tradition är centrala för EU:s sammanhållningspolitik. Enligt författarnas mening bör detta leda till en omprövning av denna politik i alla dess dimensioner: den ekonomiska, den sociala, den miljömässiga och framför allt den territoriella. Lösningarna på problemet med befolkningsminskning ligger således i införandet av ett flernivåstyre, där insatser görs på både överregional nivå (EU, stater), inomregional nivå (lokala myndigheter, tätorter) och mellanregional nivå (gränsöverskridande områden, interna marginalområden).

The Future of Young Farmers in the EU

01-04-2000

The study provides an analysis of the current situation of young farmers within the EU and in six “first-wave” candidate countries for EU membership (Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Poland and Slovenia).It describes the problems faced by young farmers at present. This description is based on statistics, and on opinion provided by a large number of sources contacted and researched, both at EU and at national level.

Toward a European Policy for Mountain Regions

01-07-1999

To maximise the potential of the mountainous regions of Europe the framework of current European policies in this sector must be improved. The report advocates an integrated and flexible approach, making it possible to adapt to the diversity of these areas, taking account of their differing economic, environmental and sociological aspects.
