       future. 
520    Discusses the challenges posed by a rapidly aging 
       population and identifies needed research to help 
       policymakers better respond to them. While the percentage 
       of elderly people in nearly every nation is growing, this 
       aging trend is particularly stark in parts of Asia. 
       Projections indicate that the portion of the population 
       age 65 and older will more than triple in China, India, 
       and Indonesia and more than double in Japan between 2000 
       and 2050, based on data from the United Nations. Moreover,
       this demographic shift is coinciding with dramatic 
       economic and social changes in Asia, including changing 
       family structures and large-scale migrations from rural to
       urban areas. These trends raise critical questions about 
       how nations can develop policies that best support health 
       and economic well-being in large and growing populations 
       at older ages. Governments in Asia still have time to 
       determine the best ways to respond to the unfolding 
       demographic transformation, but taking advantage of this 
       window of opportunity will require new research to shed 
       light on the status and needs of the aging population. 
       Currently the research base on aging in this region is 
       relatively underdeveloped. This book identifies several 
       key topics for research to inform public policy, including
       changing roles in the family; labor force participation, 
       income, and savings; and health and well-being of the 
       public.--Publishers description.
