The John A. Hartford Aging Society Index
The goal of the grant is to develop an evidence-based composite measure, or ‘index,’ that describes the capacity of countries to successfully adapt to the world’s aging population. The index will build on the prior work of a number of prominent interdisciplinary scholars, including John Rowe, MD, and other members of the MacArthur Network on an Aging Society. It will serve both as a guide to the implementation of policies and a tool by which stakeholders can assess their effectiveness over time and across countries. It will also play a critical role in guiding future policymaking in order to mitigate the risks and expand the opportunities of an aging United States, as well as elsewhere across the globe.
