From November 1st., the National Population Aging Survey, ENEP 2017, was developed in Cuba. Its purpose is to know how this process takes place in Cuba and covers different topics, including sociodemographic and socioeconomic conditions, health status, dependency and care, and networks of family and social support available to individuals who have already reached or are on track to join this segment of society.

MSC Juan Carlos Alfonso, director of the Center for Population and Development Studies (CEPDE), of the National Office of Statistics and Information (ONEI), informed Granma that they will interview people of both sexes aged 50 and older, permanent residents in a little more than 20,000 urban and rural homes of all the municipalities of the country, selected at random.

Scheduled to end on December 15, the study is in charge of the CEPDE itself and the Research Center on Longevity, Aging and Health (CITED), of the Ministry of Public Health.
