All these of population ageing are illustrated spatially (using GIS map level is done features of them at the district level from 1971 to 2001. analysis by analyzing The an at the district according to sex and residence. So, unlike as observed in other a studies, this book could additional information on socio-demographic and spatial signs provide ageing s of population ageing for each district in the country, also incorporating data from recent surveys on the characteristics of the older persons, not available in the Census reports. However, the author wish to remind all its readers or researchers in the field of ageing that there are still many more interesting things to write about the ageing situation and the older persons.
