How seniors of Taiwan are perceived and how they perceive themselves

A survey of 24,723 people between the ages of 15 and 64 on how seniors of Taiwan are perceived and how they perceive themselves showed that 80% of the people between 15 and 64 years old say seniors “have the ability to solve problems” while 53% of seniors over 65 years old themselves say “they themselves feel physically weak and plagued by many illnesses”, and 41% say “they themselves believe they do not have the ability to work”, and 40% say “they themselves believe they are a burden to their families and to society.”

Taiwan has 300.8 million seniors over the age of 65, or 12.8% of a total population of 23.5 million.  In 2018, the population of seniors 65 years old and older will reach 14% of total, and by 2026, it will reach 20%.
