The European Commission recently released a report on the ageing society and changing family and household patterns in the EU.   The report, reviewed during the bi-annual European Forum on Demography in November, provides the latest facts and figures needed to assess how Member States are responding to the challenges of the demographic change.

The report focuses in particular on two issues:  the modernization of family policies and opportunities for enhancing the contribution of older people to the economy and society.
