Two new sexagenarians every second

Every second, two people celebrate their sixtieth birthday in the world, according to the Global AgeWatch Index 2015, which was published in early September. This report, compiled by an independent body, looks at the care and life expectancy of people over 60 in the world.

Today, there are some 900 million people in the 60s around the world, and they will reach nearly 2.1 billion in 2050. By that time, they will represent more than one-fifth of the total population (21.5%). ) and will outnumber children under 15 years old.

Nothing alarming until then. Except that sexas do not enjoy the same living conditions according to their place of residence. This year, it is in Switzerland that we are getting older. A country with the highest rate of satisfaction of seniors for the good functioning of public transport, civic freedom and the maintenance of social ties. Norway and Sweden complete the top three. France keeps its 17e position (out of 96), behind Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. On the other hand, Japan has the highest life expectancy (26 years on average after 60 years). The Sun-Rising Empire already has 33% of people in its 60s and has taken steps to pamper them for a long time. What inspire other nations?
