Iran’s population will get increasingly older over the next two decades. Last year (March 2017-18), 6.1% of the population were over 65 years. 
In 1400 (March 2021-22), 1405 (March 2026-27) and 1410 (March 2031-32), the share is estimated to rise to 6.7%, 7.9% and 9.3% respectively. Iran’s 65-and-over population is projected to comprise 11% of the total population in 1415 (March 2036-37), according to a report by the Statistical Center of Iran. 
Using results from integrated population modeling, which combines demographic and survey data into a single, comprehensive analysis and provides more coherent estimates of vital rates, SCI predicted that Iranians of ages up to 14 would account for 24.6% of the total population in 1400. They will make up 23.7% of the population in 1405, 21.6% in 1410 and 19.7% of the total population in 1415 from 24.3% in 2017-18.
