Asia is the world’s most rapidly ageing region, with a range of demographic stages represented. The Asian region is also home to more than 40% of the world’s population, living in countries with dramatically different per capita incomes and rates of economic growth. Research focuses on these population dynamics and their interactions, including the determination of evolving demographies in some of the region’s largest countries. It examines differences between and within national populations, their health status, and their life expectancy, and studies policy reform and its implications both for the countries involved and for Australia.
