Unleashing the Economic Potential of Older Women
How inclusion and representation benefit us all
By FP Analytics, with support from AARP
By 2050, the global population of women over the age of 60 will nearly double from 605 million currently to 1.14 billion. This increase in the older-female share of the population will have significant implications for social and economic outcomes, particularly in lower- and middle-income countries, which are aging rapidly. This issue brief by FP Analytics, with support from AARP, focuses on the economic challenges facing older women across the world, and the opportunities and dividends presented by their greater economic inclusion.
