Title of the thesis:
|Silver Economy in Slovak Regions|
|Summary:||Ageing of population is currently the prevalent demographic trend in developed countries and regions, and is caused both by prolonged life expectancy as well as low birth rate. Changing age composition of the population leads to change in consumer preferences and structure of household expenditures. The main objective of this master thesis is to identify the current possibilities and challenges of silver economy in regions of Slovakia. We analysed the spatial aspects of age structure of population in Slovakia, migration tendencies of elderly population as well as their purchasing power and consumer behaviour. The most important results indicate that the age composition of regions in Slovakia varies significantly, while we can expect these disparities to deepen primarily in the rural-urban context as evidenced by the migration tendencies of elderly, who usually migrate from urban to rural areas. However, we can no longer see them only as a burden on public budgets and a threat to development but also as a potential, the claim which is substantiated by the identified growth of their income level and induced changes in their consumer habits- increase of proportion of expenditures allocated for example on leisure activities. This is a strong indicator of emerging entrepreneurial opportunities in the silver sector mainly in rural regions surrounding important urban centres of Slovakia.|
