Map of National Indices for Optimal Ageing


In a joint working team of government ministries, JDC Israel Eshel, JDC Israel Brookdale, the Central Bureau of Statistics and the Israel Gerontological Data Center (IGDC), a map of national indices for optimal aging was compiled. The goal is to measure these indices repeatedly in order to learn about changes over time. The map serves as a guide for the Israeli government to deal with the widespread challenge of aging, by monitoring the condition of the older population according to the optimal aging indices over the years and in international comparison. One of the main data sources for this map is the SHARE survey.
