Proceedings of the United Nations Expert Group Meeting on Social and
Economic Implications of Changing Population Age Structures

Mexico City, 31 August - 2 September 2005

The Meeting considered the consequences of the worldwide demographic transition and the changing age structure of populations, including the different types of potential demographic dividends, intergenerational transfers, the effects of ageing on the macro-economy, the viability of social security systems, and health.
