Population ageing, defined as an increase in the proportion of older persons (those aged 60 years and above) in the total population has occurred all over the world. In developed countries, population ageing occurred over a time span of more than a century and hence these countries were able to prepare themselves for an aged society. In Indonesia too, population ageing has started emerging as a distinct demographic feature and the proportion of older persons, which remained around 6 per cent during the period 1950-1990, now exceeds 8 per cent and is projected to rise to 13 per cent by 2025, and further to 25 per cent by 2050. This means that by 2050 one in four Indonesians would be classified as an older person, compared to one in twelve at present.
