1:20 – 1:40    UN Titchfield City Group on Ageing

2:00 – 2.20    Implications of childlessness among tomorrow’s older population in the UK

The Titchfield Group on Ageing statistics was created at the forty-ninth session of the United Nations Statistical Commission (UNSC) in March 2018. The purpose of the group is to contribute to establishing international standards and methods for the compilation of statistics and data on the major dimensions of ageing and age-disaggregated data across the life cycle, and to collaborate with United Nations (UN) bodies and other organizations concerned with specific aspects of ageing and age statistics.

The overall objective of the Titchfield Group is to develop standardized tools and methods for producing both data disaggregated by age and ageing-related data, and encourage countries to do so, by playing a leading role in the development and communication of new standards and methodologies. The City Group will also address existing issues and deficits in data on ageing.

This talk will consider particular aspects of ageing and review the work of the City Group.
