The European Centre for Social Welfare Policy and Research in Vienna have recently published a new policy brief Active Ageing Index (AAI): A Legacy of the European Year 2012 for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations.


This Policy Brief summarises the results of the latest 2014 AAI for the 28 EU countries. The in-depth analysis of the constituent parts of the AAI (its 22 indicators in four domains) helps to explore what forms of active ageing potentials of older people have yet to be realised in different countries. With results now available for three data points, the AAI has started to facilitate the benchmarking of country performances, to encourage countries to look at policies and programmes that other countries have adopted and learn from those experiences.
