Senior citizens in the sense of this indicator are those over 65 years of age. The seniors' ratio reflects the share of the over-65s in the total population in a geographical unit. It is therefore an informative statistic for the analysis of the demographic structure of the population, since a high proportion of senior citizens indicates an ageing population. The ratio of senior citizens in Austria is generally growing, which is due in particular to rising life expectancy, but is of course also connected with the not particularly high birth rate. Senior citizens are relevant in many respects in the analysis of economic, social and especially political aspects. Senior citizens are a significant factor in economic terms, as they make increasing use of certain goods and services due to their age. This includes in particular health care services. In this context, the importance of seniors in the social sector is obvious. Furthermore, senior citizens are a significant political factor, also due to their sheer number, which is reflected in Austrian domestic politics.
Similio offers numerous Seniors comparisons with interactive maps. There is a separate map for each Austrian municipality. Further maps for Seniors are available at the level of political districts, landscapes, regions and at the level of federal provinces.
