Population Ageing in Northern Australia: Seniors’ Voices on Ageing in Place
Authored: Andrew Taylor & Hannah Payer, Northern Institute, Charles Darwin University, Ellengowan Drive, Darwin, NT 0909, Australia
[extract “The very old population (those 85 years and over) is projected to grow from just under 2000 residents in 2011 to just under 14,000 residents in 2041 (or 700 % growth). Indicative of the scale of ageing in the contexts of a small population, net projected growth in the very old cohort is greater than the size of the NT’s third largest town of Katherine.”
