Preface

As populations across the UNECE region and throughout the world grow older, it becomes increasingly important both to produce statistics on topics of specific relevance to ageing and older people, and to ensure adequate, representative coverage of older people in the production of statistics on all topic areas. With this in mind, a UNECE Task Force produced the Recommendations on Ageing-related Statistics, published in 2016. Among the priority areas identified for future work in those recommendations was the issue of how to approach the inclusion in statistics of older people who are not part of a private household, but who instead live in an institution.
