Hide / Show Abstract

Population ageing is one of the main driving forces behind the wave of pension reforms across the world in recent years. The old-age support ratio is an important indicator of the pressures that demographics pose for pension systems. It measures how many people there are of working age (20-64) relative to the number of retirement age (65+). At the moment, there are just over eight people of working age for every one of pension age on average.
