Ukraine's population is gradually aging the main cause of the decline in population of Ukraine continues to be low birth rate.
For decades, women (53,87%) in Ukraine more than men (46.13%). This ratio for decades does not change significantly. The average life expectancy for men is - 62.5 years, women - 74.3 years (2007 - 2008). Despite the gradual increasing of birth rate population is gradually aging. Thus, according to the State Statistics Services of Ukraine's population of over 60 years with 18.66% in 1991, gradually increased to 20.91% in 2011, also increased the population aged 15-59 years, from 58.56% in 1991 to 63.80% in 2011, and the population in the age of 0-15 years has decreased from 22.78% in 1991 to 15.30% in 2011 The urban population in Ukraine grew from 67.4% in 2001 to 68.42% in 2011, the process of urbanization is still going on in the country. Today, more than two thirds of the population live in urban areas.
