Nearly 1 in 5 Cubans is 60 or Older

HAVANA – People age 60 and older make up 19.4 percent of Cuba’s 11.23 million residents, which points to a “relatively accelerated” aging of the population, the National Bureau of Statistics and Information said Thursday.

Children 14 and under represent 16.5 percent of the population.

The central province of Villa Clara is the oldest in the country, with 22.8 percent of residents over 60, followed by Havana, 20.8 percent: and Sancti Spiritus, 20.6 percent.

Guantanamo province, in the southeast, has the lowest proportion of people 60 and up, 16.7 percent.

With a low birth rate since the 1970s and a record 99,000 deaths in 2015, Cuba is approaching zero population growth with substantial net outward migration.

By 2050, according to official estimates, Cuba will rank ninth worldwide in the proportion of elderly residents.
