State of Ageing in South Australia is a statistical snapshot of South Australia's older population and provides valuable information about what an ageing population means for the state. The report identifies implications and opportunities which will influence policy and service direction for both Government and non-Government sectors as the population ages.

The report is the first project of the South Australian Ageing Research Round Table, an initiative of the Office for the Ageing that brings together Flinders University, the University of Adelaide and University of South Australia. The group will monitor the implications of an ageing population and link policy into practice. Professor Mary Luszcz led the research group for the Flinders University contribution to this report.


State of Ageing in South Australia was released by the Minister for Ageing, the Hon Jennifer Rankine MP, on 17 September 2009.
