Paris, resistant to the ageing of its population

étude - têtière - Paris résiste au vieillissement démographique  APBROAPU517

The proportion of people aged 60 and over in Paris is  levelling out after continuing to drop since 1975. In the rest of mainland France,  however, there has,been a significant rise. The ageing of Parisian inhabitants has been limited by young people arriving and older people leaving when they retire. In Paris four out of ten elderly people live alone in their own homes and there is less special care accommodation available for the dependant elderly than at a regional level. Elderly Parisians have, on average, higher incomes and better health than in the region and in France as a whole, despite wide disparities.
