  • Population ageing is the most significant demographic trend in Serbia, with 17.3 per cent of its citizens being 65 years or over and highest median age of population among South East European neighbors. In the last fifty years the share of younger populations aged 0 to 14 years have almost halved in Serbia, while the share of older populations have doubled. On the other hand, population projections produced by Statistical Office of the republic of Serbia indicate that in thirty years, according to the low variant, more than every fourth person in Serbia would be over 65.
