Gross pension replacement rates: Public and private schemes

Private pensions play a large and growing role in providing incomes for old age. This is illustrated with calculations of gross pension replacement rates which distinguish the contributions of public and private sectors. The OECD average for replacement rates of an average earner from public schemes alone is 41%, compared with 54% with mandatory private pensions included. When voluntary private pensions, under typical rules, are added, the average replacement rate is 68% for an average earner.
