The report provides a broad look at the demographics of ageing in Cambodia and links the Cambodian Rural Urban Migration Project data to migration out of rural households and the situation of older persons in rural areas.

Rapid migration and population ageing are two phenomena that are co-occurring in Cambodia. The combination of these two demographic events suggests that need to examine empirically the demography of ageing in the country and the impact of migration on the growing population of older adults.
