This report details the ‘Active Ageing Index for Azerbaijan’ (AAI) for the first time, following the methodology used for the 2014 AAI in European Union Member States. The report reviews the relative position of Azerbaijan in comparison to the EU Member States, by analysing the overall AAI and its domain-specific indexes. The analysis in this report suggests that to have an effective welfare system for older people it is necessary to incorporate the idea and principles of active ageing to respond to a rapidly changing society and to improve the quality of life in old age.
