Older Australia at a Glance

The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) has just released the 4th edition of Older Australia at a glance. This vital resource provides 216 pages of information about the characteristics and circumstances of Australia's 2.7 million older Australians. It brings together the latest ABS data on older people, together with some AIHW analysis of ABS data, and key statistics from other relevant sources.

A wide range of topics are covered, including demographic, social, and economic data, health and functioning, use of health and aged care services, and special population groups. This edition also looks at mature age people (aged 45-64) for information about future generations of older people.
