The Global Longevity Economy® Outlook

AARP The Global Longevity Economy® Outlook builds on AARP’s existing longevity economy work by estimating the 50-plus population’s consumption spending and the resulting impact on GDP, employment, and labor income from 2020 to 2050. This study examines 76 economies which span six continents and collectively account for 79% of the world’s population and 95% of global GDP.
