„Study on the collection, assessment and development of standards and indicators on demographic change for the EU project DART (Declining, Aging and Regional Transformation)“.

Development of a system of demographically and economically relevant social indicators and standards as well as their implementation in problematic regions of European countries, including a corresponding policy advice - scientific management of the study until 2012, cooperation with the 13 participating EU regions on behalf of the State Chancellery of the State of Brandenburg and the Saxon State Chancellery - as part of the INTERREG IVC project.

Population decline, aging and regional transformation, in short demographic change, are a challenge for many European regions. Therefore, 13 regions have joined together in the DART (Declining, Aging and Regional Transformation) project for an EU-wide exchange of experiences in order to cooperate in the identification and transfer of exemplary solutions for shaping change and its consequences.

Indicators and standards of demographic change in Europe

PDF:  Part 1: Indicators

In the first part of this three-part documentation, the model regions were examined for the common characteristics that are suitable as indicators for the measurability of the population decline and other symptoms of demographic change. These are indicator complexes that have been developed for the provision of data from the individual study regions and made available to them. They enable a comparison between the data collected or to be collected in the study areas.

In the analysis, concrete procedures were developed that can be used as the basis for generally transferable adaptation strategies and action plans.

PDF:  Part 2: Standards

The second part of the three-part documentation localizes examples of „good practice“ (standards) in the study regions. Particular attention was paid to the factors that strengthen the economy and thus result in a sustainable improvement of the social infrastructure. One of the objectives was to transfer these best practices across Europe to the areas affected by the effects of demographic change. The results of this project provide recommendations for action on the problems of demographic change for European, national and regional political decision-makers.
