Abstract

"Averting the old age crisis: policies to protect the old and promote growth,"the publication for which this technical annex provides supporting documentation, is the third in a series of major World Bank policy research reports. Unlike its predecessors,"The East Asian miracle"and"Adjustment in Africa,"it does not concentrate on a specific region but focuses rather on the general topic of income security for old age. More than two years of research were required to gather data, review the theoretical literature, examine empirical evidence, and write the book that represents the Bank's most important study of the issue to date. This annex explains in detail the data sources, concepts, and definitions used in the book and provides additional information. It describes the demographic data used in the report and discusses data about public and privately managed pension schemes around the world (giving specific sources for individual countries).
