Ageing in ASEAN: Its Socio-Economic Consequences

About the Publication

This book presents the key findings of studies done under the ASEAN Phase III Population Project, Socio-Economic Consequences of the Ageing of the Population in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand. It begins by outlining the demographic background to the ageing process in these countries and a projection of the situation of ageing into the future. It examines the profile of the aged and gives a brief overview of the living arrangements of the elderly, their employment, financial support, and health care, and the role played by their children in old age security. It then goes on to describe the services provided at the national and local levels by government and private agencies and gives an evaluation of the role and contribution of the aged in the community. The book ends with a discussion on the social and policy implications of ageing in each of the participating countries.
