The ageing of the population is one of the major problems for many countries requiring new social and political strategies. Economix has been involved in the research on this topic for many years. It submitted studies on the economic impact of ageing, on activation policies, and the employers' management approaches for older workers. It also developed new statistical indicators for the duration of working live.

Recently, the OECD published 22 country reports on key policies to promote longer working lives undertaken by Economix.
