Is the spelling Aging or Ageing?

Whether it’s debtors ageing/aging or ageism/agism in business, a search of the internet reveals around a third of articles on Australian sites use the secondary spelling aging. The American spelling is aging without the ‘e’, but in Australia there are two spelling variations.

According to both the Macquarie and Oxford dictionaries, the preferred Australian English spelling is ageing with an ‘e’. Aging without the ‘e’ is listed as a secondary spelling.
