  • Sławomir Kurek - Pedagogical University of Cracow, Poland

  • Keywords
    population ageing, geographical approach, methodology of ageing studies

    In this paper population ageing studies are shown from a geographical perspective. Four main aspects of population ageing in a geographical approach are considered: theoretical aspects in connection with the demographic transition theory, the cognitive aspect leading to territorial distribution of the level and dynamics of ageing; the application aspect connected with socio-economic consequences of this phenomenon and the use of projections as well as the methodological aspect connected with its measurement and classification.
