China has the largest elderly population in the world with 194 million people, or 14.3% of the total population aged above 60 at the end of 2012 and over 300 million estimated by 2024. The country also has one of the most rapidly ageing societies in the world with a projected increase in the elderly (60+ years of age) from 12% in 2010 to 34% or more than 400 million in 2050 exceeding the total populations of Germany, France and the United Kingdom combined.
