Summary

There are many more old people today than in the past. Not only their absolute number, but also their percentage of the total population has increased. In Germany z. For example, in the relatively short period of 90 years, the percentage of people over 60 has more than doubled, and that of over 70s has more than tripled (see Table 1). These are just the percentages; but if at the same time one takes into account the substantial increase in population density, the result is that the actual number of people in the older age groups has grown quite considerably. There are many reasons for this, of which more important than the population losses caused by the war is the general decline in mortality, which is not only found in infants and children, but in everyone, especially the elderly. The average life expectancy of Scit has increased steadily at the turn of the century. In 1900 it was 42 years for a newborn; 1950: 65 years. The change in the population structure as a result of the progressive lengthening of life becomes even clearer in the shift in the age of death: in 1950, 47% of those who died were over 70 years old, compared to only 23.9% at the turn of the century.
