Population Aging in India: Facts, Issues, and Questions,” by Arunika Agarwal, Alyssa Lubet, Elizabeth Mitgang, Sanjay Mohanty, and David E. Bloom (PGDA Working Paper No. 132, 2016, .pdf format, 24p.).

Abstract:

India, one of the world’s two population superpowers, is undergoing unprecedented demographic changes. Increasing longevity and falling fertility have resulted in a dramatic increase in the population of adults aged 60 and up, in both absolute and relative terms. This change presents wide-ranging and complex health, social, and economic challenges, both current and future, to which this diverse and heterogeneous country must rapidly adapt. This chapter first lays out the context, scope, and magnitude of India’s demographic changes. It then details the major challenges these shifts pose in the interconnected areas of health, especially the massive challenges of a growing burden of noncommunicable diseases; gender, particularly the needs and vulnerabilities of an increasingly female older adult population; and income security. This chapter also presents an overview of India’s recent and ongoing initiatives to adapt to population aging and provide support to older adults and their families. It concludes with policy recommendations that may serve as a productive next step forward, keeping in mind the need for urgent and timely action on the part of government, private companies, researchers, and general population.

The Role of Hormones in Sexual Expression in Later Life,” by John DeLamater and Rengin Aktar (2016-03, August 2016, .pdf format, 27p.).

Abstract:

Objective. To assess the role of hormones relative to other individual and couple characteristics on sexual expression of US men and women between the ages of 57 and 85.

Methods. Using data from the National Social Life, Health, and Aging Project, we examine the relationship of salivary testosterone, estradiol, and progesterone to three measures of sexual expression. Regression analyses included measures of individual mental health and physical health, attitudes, and quality of relationship measures.

Results. Estrogen levels decline significantly among both men and women from 57 to 85. There are significant linear (positive) and curvilinear relationships between estrogen levels and sexual desire for men. There is a significant curvilinear relationship between progesterone levels and masturbation for men. Greater sexual desire is associated with younger age, good emotional health, physical activity, and being in a relationship. More frequent masturbation is associated with younger age, higher levels of desire, and less liberal attitudes toward sex. More frequent sexual activity is associated with younger age and greater desire.

Discussion. Hormones have some influence on the sexual functioning of men. Influences on the functioning of both men and women include sexual desire, physical health and activity, emotional health and whether one is in a relationship
