VODCAST - 12 January 2017 Wittgenstein Centre
Warren Sanderson describes how old age can be measured accurately by taking time and space into account, on the example of the so called prospective aging. He shows that not all 60 year olds are the same and that their characteristics have to be taken into account. The presentation is based on new research from the World Population Program Reassessing Aging from a Population Perspective (Re-Aging) project.
Watch the second part - the discussion after the presentation of Warren Sanderson and Sergei Scherbov.
The presentation was given on 7 December 2016 during a conference in honor of World Population Program (POP) Director Wolfgang Lutz' 60th birthday. The scientific event was organized by the Wittgenstein Centre (IIASA,VID/OeAW,WU) and its three pillars, IIASA, the VID at the Austrian Academy of Sciences, and the Vienna University of Economics and Business.
