Demographic Outlook for the EU in 2020: Understanding population trends in the EU

3 March, 2020 | 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

This policy roundtable presents the 2020 edition of the EPRS’s ‘Demographic Outlook of the EU’, which tracks demographic change at European level. The study uses the latest data from Eurostat and the United Nations to explore the main demographic indicators, such as the median age, fertility rates or life expectancy, comparing them between EU Member States and between the EU and the rest of the world.

The dramatically ageing population of the EU has serious implications across a wide range of policy areas, including the economy, healthcare and pensions. Free movement within the EU and migration from third countries also play an important role in shaping demography in individual Member States and regions.
