In addition, an analysis of the characteristics of the population of 60 years and over, as well as some material conditions of housing and the provision of basic services where this population resides is performed. Among the highlights founded are the regional differences between their DAME and between urban and rural areas of these territories. In addition, Moa accelerated aging process, the second municipality with the youngest demographic structure of the country.
