The perspectives of ageing populations in most Western countries have raised issues such as how fast will the ageing process go, when will we reach the peak of the dependency ratio, how severe will the burden of the large baby-boom cohorts become to the younger cohorts, and, perhaps most interesting, who will pay for the pensions, the health care and the social care of the baby-boom cohorts? These issues motivated the project "Old baby-boomers" the results of which are reported in this volume.
