Armenia is 51st among 91 countries in the Global AgeWatch Index 2013, which ranks countries by how well their ageing populations are faring. It is based on four domains that are key enablers of older people’s wellbeing: income, health, employment and education, and enabling environment
Armenia features in the lower half of the Global Age Watch Index, ranking 51. It is one of the top performers globally in terms of employment and education, ranking 3 out of 91 countries, but ranks very poorly in the health status and enabling environment domains at 75 and 80 respectively.
According to the report, Armenia faces significant challenges due to rapid population ageing and the lack of reforms in place to mitigate its impact. Armenia is already considered an “ageing” country, with more than 30% of the population predicted to be aged 60 or over by 2050.
Russia is 78th, Georgia and Turkey are ranked 37th and 70th respectively. No data is available about Iran and Azerbaijan.
