According to forecasts of the Center of Studies on Population and Development (CEPDE) of the National Bureau of Statistics and Information, in 2050, 33.2% of the Cuban population, about three million 598 thousand 782 people, will be 60 years or more. This would make Cuba the ninth most aged population on the planet for those dates.
The estimates were made using a method that takes into account three variables that currently affect the dynamics and demographic composition of Cuba and other nations: fertility, mortality and migration.
Demographic trends in Cuba has long been a major concern of the Cuban authorities, for the reduction of active workers and people linked to paid activities is a major challenge for social services and economy. In this sense, they put in march incipient but still poor, measures to encourage new births.
