Socio-Economic Impacts Of The Current Demographic Process In Galicia
AbstractThe decline in birth rate and increasing life expectancy are the key factors that explain the demographic process in Galicia and its most immediate consequence is the aging of its population. The low birthrate limits the size of new cohorts and also affects the size of the total population. This demographic trend poses a challenge in maintaining the current welfare state, where the relative size of cohorts is crucial. In this work we describe the current demographic process in Galicia and analyze its main consequences in the labor market, pensions, health and disability spending as well as spending on education.
