FACT BOOK ON AGING IN BRITISH COLUMBIA AND CANADA
October 4, 2023
In conjunction with my co-authors, Boah Kim and Sarah Qiu, we are pleased to share with you the 8th Edition of the Fact Book on Aging in British Columbia and Canada, published by the Gerontology Research Centre. This 107-page monograph compiles the most up-to-date demographic, social and health data on older adults with comparisons between BC and Canada, as well as historical patterns. Data are drawn from several sources, but primarily the 2021 Canadian census and BC STATS. This is a free publication, so feel free to share it with your networks. It is hoped that this monograph contributes to gerontological research, knowledge, practice and policy in efforts to promote well-being over the life course.
