Mostly it appears in the form of decrease of the youth population and gradual increase of the elderly segment. This phenomenon, commonly referred to as population aging, is majorly caused by the decrease in birth rates, decrease in death rates as well as low migration patterns. To this end, most demographic projections indicate that by the year 2060, the percentage of the population older than 65 will be higher than the share of people under 15 (Uhlenberg, 2015). The pace of population deformations is alarming. Demographers explaining the reasons behind the global demographic changes conclude that social, economic and political environment is shifted by abovementioned deformations.
