UNFPA launched several reports at the Regional Conference, including “ Population Ageing in Iran”, published by UNFPA Iran in collaboration with the Demography Department of the University of Tehran and the Statistical Center of Iran.

The report provides an extensive mapping of ageing in Iran, showing that people over 60 currently make up 8.1% of Iran’s total population. However, the number of elderly is growing at a much faster rate than the rest of the population. While the annual population growth rate for the general population is less than 1.5%, the annual growth rate for those aged 60-65 is 4.3%.
