Projected doubling of population age 85-plus in Wales by 2036

Public Health Wales Observatory published Demography 2016 in July.  Findings indicate a 14%-16% decline in the all-cause mortality rate. The authors’ projections  suggest that the number of people over the age of 85 will have more than doubled by 2036.

Statistics and reports are available for Wales, and for the individual Health Board areas.
