Abstract (English)

The population of elderly people in the European Union currently ranges from 12.2% (Ireland) to 20.6% (Germany).1 Germany, with 17 million elderly people, thus currently represents the European country with the oldest population, and this cohort will increase to approximately 23.4 million by 2050.1 According to the US Census Bureau,2 in the United States approximately 47 million (15%) of the population are currently older than 65 years. It is moreover expected that the US population will become significantly older and reach 83.7 million people older than 65 years in 2050 (ie, 20% of the population).
