Better indicators are needed to track the well-being of elderly in developing countries (ADB Institute)

With aging becoming a pressing issue in many countries, especially in Asia, governments need better indicators that track the well-being of the elderly to craft policies to better meet the needs of the aged.

Many countries do not have the data needed for sound policy making, planning, and investment targeting, which leads to piecemeal public policies with little sense of priority.

The People’s Republic of China, Thailand, and Viet Nam are just some of the countries relatively unprepared to deal with their rapidly aging societies.
