Cambodia’s demographics are fundamentally changing. According to government statistics, the elderly population is growing.
In early 1998, senior citizens were a relatively small proportion of the country (5.2 per cent, or 600,000), but this demographic will considerably increase in the coming years.
One UN estimate projects an increase in the size of the elderly population from 1.1 million in 2015 to around two million in 2030.
