Population of aged

Jeddah: Percentage of population aged 60 years and above in the member states of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has grown from 5.7 percent in 1990 to 6.7 percent in 2015, according to reports published by the Statistical, Economic and Social Research and Training Centre for Islamic Countries (SESRIC), based on UN reports.

During the same period, the share of the population aged 60 years or above rose from 8 percent to 11.7 percent in non-OIC developing countries, and from 17.4 percent to 24 percent in developed countries.

This suggests that the pace of aging in the OIC member states between 1990 and 2015 has been slow compared with other countries, but it is expected to reach 9.3 percent. By 2030, OIC countries will account for 15 percent of the aging population in the world, estimates have indicated.

According to reports, the share of older persons in the total population of the OIC member states is not homogeneous. In 2015, OIC countries with the lowest share of the population aged 60 or above included countries from Asia as well as the Arab and African regions.

By 2030, OIC countries with the lowest share of the population aged 60 or above will be the sub-Saharan African member states ranking as follows: Uganda, Mali, Chad, Niger, Burkina Faso, Somalia, Gambia, Sierra Leone, Nigeria and Mozambique.
