Changes in the size and profile of the Dutch population have consequences in a host of societal domains. The labour market is an example: who is in work? Are there barriers to labour market entry? Until what age do people continue working? Another example is care and support: how have care needs changed in the light of the increase in the number of old people, and are there enough ‘hands around the bed’ to meet those needs? What new homes need to be built to meet changing housing needs? A changing population also has consequences for societal, social and cultural participation. A wide range of societal domains are discussed in this publication. This concluding chapter presents the key findings in an overarching review of the last 25 years, starting with the demographic context in which these developments have taken place.
