The aging of the population has had a marked impact on the societies demographically advanced during the last decades of the TWENTIETH century and all indications are that it will stay in the near future. The present volume deals with the basic knowledge around the aging from a triple perspective: health, demographic, and sociological. With this helps to lay the groundwork for future agendas required that they pay attention not only to the economic consequences of aging, but also to the increase of the quality of life, health and well-being of citizens throughout their lives.
