International patterns of pension provision


  • Palacios,Robert J.
  • Pallares-Miralles,Montserrat


The main purpose of this report is to provide useful cross-country data on public and private pension systems. It updates and expands on earlier work. This report also provides a superficial analysis of the observed patterns of pension provision. Important relationships between key pension indicators and country characteristics are highlighted. In some cases, statistical relationships presented in earlier work are re-estimated using more recent data and expanded samples. Finally, the primary sources for most of the materials are documented. Section one gives introduction. Section two draws upon demographic projections by the World Bank population division. They cover the period until 2040. The third section presents the global trend on pension provisions in the world, while the fourth section takes a regional perspective. The annex provides demographic projections for individual countries.
