Abstract

Declining birth rates, increasing longevity, and urbanization have created a new challenge for cities: how to respond to an aging population. Although population aging and urbanization are not new concerns for national governments around the world, the consequences of these trends for quality of life in cities have received scant attention. No comparative studies of world cities have examined their health or long-term care systems; nor have comparisons of national systems for the provision of long-term care focused on cities, let alone world cities.
