This question-and-answer session followed presentations by Richard Jackson, of the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and Robert Scardamalia, currently of RLS Demographics and formerly the chief demographer for New York State. Jackson presented his Global Aging Preparedness Index, describing the social and public-policy challenges arising from growing populations of older citizens around the world and the ways different countries are responding to those challenges. Scardamalia discussed current and future trends in the aging of New York’s population, especially upstate New York and the Capital Region.
