Where to Retire and Not Die
The HelpAge International Global AgeWatch index assesses the quality of life for 89% of the world's older people in 91 countries. The idex ranks countries by how well their ageing populations are faring using four key criteria: income, health, employment and education, and an enabling environment.
The Guardian newspaper has used the data to create a Best and Worst Places to be Old map that visualizes the data for the 91 countries. The map uses a green to red color scale to show the best to the worst countries to be old.
You can click on any of the countries on the map to view how the country fares under each of the four criteria and click through to read the full assessment on the HelpAge International website.
