Hide / Show Abstract

Average funding ratios of defined-benefit pension plans varied greatly across countries at the end of 2011. For the countries that report such data to the OECD, funding levels improved in 2011 relative to 2010, with the exception of the Netherlands where they declined substantially, partly as a result of declining interest rates. Funding levels are calculated using national (regulatory) valuation methodologies and hence cannot be compared across countries.
