Scardamalia, formerly the chief demographer for New York State, discussed current and future trends in the aging of New York’s population, especially upstate New York and the Capital Region. He followed Richard Jackson, of the Center for Strategic and International Studies, who 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.
