Problems with an ageing population are;

  • They provide a less mobile labour force- The older a person gets, the less willing they are to move from one place to another or even to change jobs.
  • Low labour supply- Old people are less productive and thus cannot provide the much needed labour force
  • High dependency levels- the old will be less productive and therefore will be highly dependent on the few working group
  • who will then be strained while providing for their needs.
  • The country becomes less progressive because it lacks the input of more energetic youth.
  • May lead to unemployment- this may be due to the fall in demand for goods and services required by the youth.
