A Leaflet is not Marketing

August 22nd, 2013 | Posted by Gordon Deuchars in Marketing - (0 Comments)

Barker and Woodward Consulting have a new blog post about marketing and marketing strategies for charities. You can find the blog post here.

We all know that people are living longer but how is that changing our society?

What is the impact on demand for housing? How will pensions be affected? How will we care for our growing older population when the population of working age is shrinking?

These types of debates are increasingly being played out in the media and in political circles but in order for such debates to be productive, they have to be well informed.

This is why ILC-UK has produced a ‘Factpack’ of demographic statistics for the UK. The 12-page booklet provides statistics on a range of topics from life expectancy to housing supply, from pensions to the popularity of smart-phones amongst today’s older generations.  The information has been collated from a range of official sources including the Office for National Statistics, the European Commission and from other research organisations.

The Factpack can be found on this link: http://bit.ly/13gQpb5
