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.

Employment rates of older workers

The employment rate falls with age in all OECD countries. For individuals of age 55 to 59 the average employment rate across all OECD countries was equal to 67% in 2014 against 44% for the 60-64 age group and 20% for the 65-69s. In 14 OECD countries the employment rates were above the OECD average for all age groups, by contrast it was below average for all age groups in 13 OECD countries. Employment rates of people aged 55-64 have improved over the past decade in most OECD countries, from 48% in 2004 to 56% in 2014.
