This report analyses the economic and budgetary impact of an ageing population over the long-term. Presented to the ECOFIN council in May 2012, the report details the expenditure projections covering pensions, health care, long-term care, education and unemployment transfers for all Member States of the European Union.

The report is structured in two parts. The first describes the assumptions underlying the population projection, the labour force projection and the other macroeconomic assumptions. The second part presents the projection of expenditure on pensions, health care, long-term care, education and unemployment transfers. A statistical annex gives a country-by-country overview of the main assumptions and results.
