The head of the Secretariat of National Council of the Elderly in the 11th session on the National Council of the Elderly, said: The province of Gilan, Mazandaran, Tehran, Isfahan and East Azerbaijan have high rank in population of older persons in Country.

According to the report of Public Relations and International Affairs, "Hesamuddin Allameh", the head of Secretariat of the National Council of the Elderly, said in the 11th session on the National Council of the Elderly, which was attended by the minister of Cooperatives, Labor and Social Welfare and the head of SWO said that The approximate age of aging in Iran is +60 years. According to scientific calculations, 15 years is reduced from the age of life expectancy, which is 75 years, and 60 years old has been introduced as old age, and the so-called population crisis is in the middle of the country's population (32 years), despite a sharp decline. Fertility rates are seeing an increase in the aging rate.

The head of the Secretariat of National Council of the Elderly stated: "a very important issue that is part of the qualitative changes that is taking place is that 72% of the elderly in the country are married, while 0.9% (about 80,000 to 90,000 people) have definite singleness and 26.6% of people are unmarried (divorced or widowed).

Singleness at a glance mold, includes people over 40 years old. we have 1.5 million definite singleness, and if one third of these people get married and one million of them reach old age in the next 20 years, the definite singleness rate is about 13 times higher than the current definite celibacy mentioned (about 80 to 90 Thousand), will increase. At the same time, about 4.2 million people are between the ages of 31 and 39.

"When older married men die, lonely older women are added," he added. Given the issue of definite celibacy, divorce rates, increasing widows, remarriage taboos for middle-aged and elderly women and mothers, one of the future phenomena we will face is to increase the number of single elderly, especially single elderly women who You have to think about this. Allameh stressed the need to establish a national organization for the elderly in the end: the national document for the elderly needs funding.
