Rodwin, V.G. Growing Older in World Cities: New York, Paris, London and Tokyo. Edited with Michael Gusmano. Nashville Tn: Vanderbuilt University Press, .
Declining birthrates, increasing longevity and growing urbanization have created a new challenge for cities: how to respond to an aging population. The World Cities Project was designed to examine whether the four largest cities among the wealthiest nations of the world - New York, London, Paris and Tokyo - offer a model of what other cities will someday resemble as their populations grow older.
Perhaps the four world cities examined here will always be regarded as special cases; however, they share in common a host of important characteristics. Within them live the largest number of older people in their countries and in some neighborhoods the percent of elders 65 or older far exceeds what the census demographers project for their nations in 2030. Thus, these great cities may serve as laboratories to inquire about the implications of demographic change for health and quality of life, living arrangements and housing, and the provision of long-term care to older adults when they eventually become frail.

Improvements in health care and declining birth rates have combined to create rapidly aging populations throughout the industrialized world. By 2020, for example, nearly seventeen percent of the US population is expected to be over the age of sixty-five. In Japan that mark has already been passed, with more than one-quarter of the population expected to be over sixty-five by 2020. At the same time, the world's population is increasingly concentrated in urban areas: the United Nations estimates that by 2025, sixty-one percent of the world's population will live in cities. As both urbanization and population aging increase, we will need models of how to accommodate this population shift and examples to emulate in dealing with these phenomena.
