The Global Longevity Economy

The Global Longevity Economy Outlook project builds on AARP’s existing Longevity Economy work by estimating the 50-plus population’s consumption spending and the resulting impact on GDP, employment, and labor income from 2020 to 2050.

This study examines 76 economies which span six continents and collectively account for 79% of the world’s population and 95% of global GDP. In addition to economic impact estimates for each individual economy, our analysis produces global estimates for the 50-plus population’s contribution to economic activity.

Economist Impact completed all data collection and analysis associated with this project. Please contact thoughtleadership@aarp.org if you have any questions or comments.
