dc.description.abstract Our population aged 65 and over consists of 33% more women than men. Our population aged 80 and over comprises more than twice as many women than men. Mortality rates of the sexes differ dramatically too. Mortality per 100,000 for 75 year old men is 6,600 while for 75 year old women it is 3,500, men having an 88 per cent higher mortality rate at age 75. Women are the overwhelming majority of our elderly population. en_US
