Expected duration

The consultancy is for 2 work months in the period from 4 February to 20 May 2019

Duties and Responsibilities

The consultant’s work will contribute to the implementation of the project “Extending the policy relevance of the Active Ageing Index: Cooperation with UNECE” (AAI-III) by carrying out calculations of the AAI indicators, domain scores and the overall value for the regions of Romania (NUTS2 level) for at least four points in time separated by at least two years, e.g. 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016 (subject to data availability).
The calculations should be implemented following as closely as possible the original methodology applied for calculating AAI for the European Union countries. Any deviations from the original methodology should be justified and explained. In case of deviations, the AAI, its domain scores and indicators will need to be calculated for Romania (national level) as well for the same data points in order to ensure comparability with the subnational results.
The obtained results will be analysed by the consultant taking into account the socio-economic specificities of the regions, as well as the policy context (relevant policies and measures implemented prior and after the first data point). The consultant will prepare a report on the AAI results for the regions of Romania, their development throughout time and the implemented analysis of the results. The report should be illustrated with graphs, maps and tables.
The consultant will work independently and will consult with the Population Unit staff as needed.
