Low fertility levels in IIASA countries are creating aging populations whose demands for health care and income maintenance (social security) will increase to unprecedented levels, thereby calling forth policies that will seek to promote increased family care and worklife flexibility. The new Population Program will examine current patterns of population aging and changing life-styles in IIASA countries, project the needs for health and income support that such patterns are likely to generate during the next several decades, and consider alternative family and employment policies that might reduce the social costs of meeting these needs.

An important component in the organizational structure of the Population Program is an extensive network of collaborating scholars and institutions in over two dozen countries. The Hungarian Central Statistical Office is a member of this network and the Head of its Population Statistics Department, Dr. Andras Klinger, is actively collaborating with the IIASA research. As part of this activity, Dr. Klinger arranged for the translation into English of the essays included in this publication. Originally prepared for a conference on the elderly population in Hungary, held in Budapest, they are being issued in this form to make them available to a wider audience.
