Data disaggregation policy priority consultation response:  priorities for older persons”  prepared on behalf of the SGA by HelpAge International and the Programme on Ageing Unit, United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs. See consultation paper here.


The Statistical Commission, at its 49th session held 6-9 March 2018, has approved the establishment of the Titchfield Group (UK) on ageing-related statistics and age-disaggregated data.  It is the tenth of such “City Groups” currently addressing specific thematic challenges in the development and implementation of statistical methodologies.

The overall objective of the Titchfield Group is to develop standardized tools and methods for producing both data disaggregated by age and ageing-related data, and to encourage countries to do so, by playing a leading role in the development and communication of new standards and methodologies.  Existing issues and deficits in data on ageing will be addressed.  See report here:  http://undocs.org/E/CN.3/2018/19.
