An index to measure the quality of aging in European Union countries shows that the Nordic nations are those that offer the best conditions for life in the third age.

In search of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) criteria were used for social and economic activities, and the ability of each country to create an environment for healthy and active seniors.

The Nordic countries were the ones who fared best. The initiative is also part of the European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations, a project conducted in partnership with the European Commission.

The highlights were Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Holland. Ireland and Britain have also appeared on the list. The countries of central and eastern Europe, Malta and Greece still need to promote more efforts to reach the level of other European nations.

Since employment rates among the elderly groups until more than 70 years tends to be high in countries such as Cyprus, Portugal, Estonia and Bulgaria. Italy, France and Spain appear a little behind on the list of employability for seniors.

According to the index used were also evaluated levels of employment for older workers, social participation, autonomy and independence in life and the ability to provide an appropriate environment for active aging.
