Pensions at a Glance 2015

OECD and G20 indicators

The 10-year anniversary edition of Pensions at a Glance highlights the pension reforms undertaken by OECD and G20 countries over the last two years. Two special chapters provide deeper analysis of first-tier pension schemes and of the impact of short or interrupted careers, due to late entry into employment, childcare or unemployment, on pension entitlements. Another chapter analyses the sensitivity of long-term pension replacement rates on various parameters. A range of indicators for comparing pension policies and their outcomes between OECD and G20 countries is also provided.

Hide / Show Abstract

On average in the OECD, 12.6% of individuals aged over 65 live in relative income poverty, defined as an income below half the national median equivalised household income. There is large variation between countries. Poverty rates are higher for older people than for the population as a whole, which averages 11.4%. However, this result is driven by a handful of countries. In 18 out of 34 OECD countries, old-age income poverty is lower than for the population as a whole.
