Pensions at a Glance 2013 - OECD and G20 Indicators: 8 Key Facts
Recent reforms of pension systems have helped to contain the rise in future costs resulting from ageing populations and increasing life expectancy. Governments now need to do more to encourage people to work longer and save more for their retirement to ensure that benefits are adequate enough to maintain standards of living into old-age.
This fifth edition of Pensions at a Glance provides a range of indicators for comparing pension policies and their outcomes between OECD countries. The indicators are also, where possible, provided for the other major economies that are members of the G20.
With co-operation from the EU and World Bank, and in view of the strong demand for cross-national indicators on the situation of pensions, the OECD has developed on-line indicators on pension outcomes and pension policies for all OECD/EU countries.
