Safe vehicles and older adults: enhancing travel and mobility options

Project: Research

Project Description

A major shift is occurring in the age distribution of Australia’s population. By 2061, the proportion of Australian adults aged 65 years and over is expected to reach 22 percent and the proportion of adults aged 85 years and over is expected to reach five percent (Australian Bureau of Statistics, 2013). The Western Australia population is ageing also, with projections of an increase in the proportions of older adults aged 65 years and over and those aged 85 years and over (WA Dept Health, 2018).
