Distribution of senior citizen households in Germany (Map of the month -- GfK GeoMarketing)

In 2007, the average age of German household heads (i.e. the main wage earner in a given residence) was 48.3. More than a third of all household heads in Germany are over sixty. There is, however, significant regional variation. Saarland, Thuringia and Saxony are the German federal states with the highest number of senior citizens. Senior citizens form a greater percentage (52%) of Schweinfurt’s population than any other location in Germany. More than half of the main wage earners in this locality are already well into their "golden years," something that is also true of the Bavarian cities of Bamberg and Passau.

GfK GeoMarketing has created a map that illustrates the distribution of senior citizen households throughout Germany.

Distribution of senior citizen households in Germany

(Illustration and data source: GfK GeoMarketing, 2007 GfK Demographics data).

The GfK Demographics data study examines socio-demographic factors and is calculated for a range of regional administrative levels. It provides information on Germany’s population and households according to household type (e.g., single- and multiple-person with or without children, non-German households, etc.), household age (i.e. age of household head), income level (divided into six brackets), as well as the architectural profile of the residence (e.g., single- or dual-family house, etc.). The GfK Demographics data are used by marketing and sales divisions for the purpose of locating target groups. The data reveal the areas in which it makes most sense to concentrate marketing and sales campaigns.
