    Special Issue on Population Aging and Social Development


    Since the mid-twentieth century, the world population has been experiencing significant ageing, the process that results from decreasing mortality and declining fertility, results in growing number and proportions of old people. The rapidly developing trend of population aging is closely related to the decline in the birth rate and mortality rate and the increase of life expectancy. It has a profound and systematic influence on labor market supply, capital accumulation, national savings, national income distribution, economic development potential and way of economic development. In this case, governments must give attention to and prepare for fiscal and macro-economic challenges represented by population ageing.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring population aging and social development. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Demographic drivers of population ageing
    • Health of the elderly
    • Fertility and mortality
    • Ageing, poverty and economic growth
    • Population ageing and social security
    • Levels and trends in population ageing
    • Population ageing and sustainable development
    • Economic, social, and political impacts of population ageing
    • Living environment, social participation and wellbeing in older ages

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.
