Q: Thank you for spending your time to read this. And please help me with my grammar.
A: I'm guessing you want corrections? Well, here goes:

According to the latest available projections, by the year 2030 one third of the population in most developed countries will be aged 65 or older, and the birth rate is predicted to decline.
By 2030, the percentage of population aged 65 or older will have risen to more than 30%. This means that fewer people will be working and therefore fewer people will be paying income tax, the government's main source of taxation revenue. It will be necessary for governments to increase the official retirement age to 70, or even older, but the governments will make sure that their workers are healthy and able to handle the job even when they get older. This also causes problems for the younger generation. In 2050, they will need to work harder to support the large number of older people. What can be done to prevent these problems?
Firstly, the governments of developed countries shold find ways to encourage larger families, and to increase the birth rate. Secondly they should enourage immigration from developing countries so that the problem of overcrowding can be solved.

Generally very good grammar, and thankfully nice handwriting too. Also, I was unsure about the last date. Was it 2030 or 2050? Please change it to what you meant.
