11 Countries With Highest Aging Population

While the U.S. has large numbers of aging baby boomers, many countries are aging even faster. In these countries, a significant portion of the population is already age 65 or older, and more than 20 percent of people are expected to become senior citizens by 2030.

An aging population is a looming economic and social burden, particularly in Europe and Northeast Asia, and to a lesser extent in the United States. In many of these societies, the public recognizes the problem. How this recognition affects the emerging politics of global aging — the allocation of scarce fiscal resources to pay for the pensions and health care of the elderly – could prove a defining issue in graying economies around the world for decades to come.

However, all these measures seem to have little effect as life expectancy is extending and fertility rates are decreasing even in these 11 countries with highest female population.
