In the current edition of Deutsche Welle's TV magazine "Global 3000", Harald Wilkoszewski (Population Europe Brussels Office) explains the role of demographic factors behind the presidential elections in the United States and the Brexit referendum in the United Kingdom. In particular, he refers to the "Generational Power Index" which was developed together with Elke Loichinger (College of Population Studies at Chulalongkorn University Bangkok and IIASA) and Patrick I. Dick (Population Europe). The index measures how much potential sway the vote of older people holds in 19 industrialised countries.
