Recognizing that the world population is ageing, the United Nations designated 1999 as “The Year of the Older Persons”.This article aims to describe the growth of older women in Indonesia.Although current older persons aged 60 years and older comprise a relatively small portion of the population in Indonesia, the percentage is projected to rise significantly.Using a secondary data analysis, various sources of existing records related to older persons in Indonesia are reviewed.Like other parts of the world, majority of the older persons in Indonesia are women. This paper describes some demographic aspects of older women in Indonesia with special reference to growth, life expectancy, marital status and labor force participation.
