In critical sociology , age stratification refers to the hierarchical ranking of people into age groups within a society .  Age stratification could also be defined as a system if inequalities linked to age. In Western societies, for example, both the old and the young are perceived and treated as relatively incompetent and excluded from much social life. See also AGEISM. Age stratification which is based on an ascribed status is a major source inequality, and thus may lead to ageism .  The resources are unevenly distributed to the elderly because they are sometimes looked down upon and treated unfairly. Ageism is a social inequality that is the result of age stratification. This is a sociological concept that comes with studying aging population.

Budgeting more on health care when aging population is found, increase university capacity to serve increasing numbers of young children) etc. [ citation needed ]
Citations : For a broader account of our ranking methodology, especially as it relates to ’s underlying educational philosophy and, in other ranking articles, looks beyond academic excellence (as here) to such factors as return on investment or incidental benefit, see our article “ Ranking Methodology: How We Rank Schools at TBS .” Reputation of schools and degree programs can at least in part be gauged through the rankings of other well-known educational ranking companies. At , we keep track of such social and peer validation: “ Making Sense of College Rankings .” For nuts-and-bolts information about colleges and universities, we look to the National Center for Education Statistics and especially its College Navigator . Insofar as salary and inflation data are relevant to a ranking, we look to the Bureau of Labor Statistics . Finally, nothing beats contacting schools and degree programs directly, which our researchers often do, with the result that all the entries in this article should be considered as belonging to this citation!
