Employment of senior citizens in the baltic sea region bioeconomy

The scale of employment of the elderly in agriculture in the Baltic Sea Region is analysed. Classification of the countries according to the age structure of persons employed in agriculture is performed with the use of Ward’s clustering method. The diagnostic features were the percentages of persons from particular age groups employed in agriculture of a given country. The mean contributions of persons aged 50-64 and above 65 in the Baltic Sea Region are similar to those working in agriculture in all 27 EU member states. The mean percentage of the elderly (above 65 years of age) was over twice smaller in the Baltic Sea Region from the group of EU-10 countries and in Denmark than the those from the EU-15 group including Finland, Germany and Sweden. In the first group of countries also the percentage of persons aged 50-64 working in agriculture was also smaller.
