Study on the questionnaires of the Observatory on Women in Europe
Over the coming decades in EU countries, the proportion of elderly people is set to increase rapidly while that of people of working age significantly decreases. Although it is a significant achievement that people are living longer, an ageing population also brings with it serious problems for European economies and social security systems. The demographic transition is considered to be one of the main challenges facing the EU.
The objective that is marked from the FERPA with this questionnaire is to have a picture of the situation of persons, retired pensioners, as an aid in favor of the social protection, in order to influence the platform that is going to be done in favor of older people and to strengthen the rights of women and older men. Also the responses obtained represent an aid in the proposals of the Committee on Women of the FERPA.
