Abstract

With a share of people older than 65 years of 16.64 per cent in total population, Croatia is considered a very old country regarding it's population. This percentage is one of the highest in already old Europe. Demographic projections reveal a further increase of share of people older than 65 years in future. There are many causes of this condition. This fact carries negative economic and health care implications which burden Croatia. Many administrative reforms are necessary to resolve this issue and to avoid economy problems and intergenerational conflicts.

Abstract in Croatian

STARENJE HRVATSKOG STANOVNIŠTVA ----- Udio ljudi starijih od 65 godina u Hrvatskoj iznosi 16,64 % od ukupnog broja stanovnika, što Hrvatsku čini zemljom sa vrlo starim pučanstvom. Navedeni udio je jedan od najviših u već ionako staroj Europi. Demografska predviđanja govore u prilog daljnjem povećanju udjela starijih od 65 godina u budućnosti. Mnogi su uzroci tog stanja. Ova činjenica donosi niz negativnih posljedica koje značajno opterećuju Hrvatsku, prije svega u području gospodarstva i zdravstvene skrbi. Potrebno je provesti administrativne i strukturne reforme da bi se umanjio ovaj značajni problem i izbjegao mogući međugeneracijski sukob.
