Among statistical data published by the Central Statistical Office there is a variety of data, that allows for monitoring and even prognosis regarding the (mainly demographic) situation of elderly people in Poland. This data is not unified, though, due to the variety in types of surveys supervised by the Central Statistical Office, and because of the nature of research concerning elderly people. Interesting data can be found in household budget surveys, voluntary work, social care surveys and labour market surveys.

The issues in question are discussed with respect to particular voivodeships.
