Led by MACHEquity coinvestigator Jody Heymann, our partners at the WORLD Policy Forum recently published a study on the global state of pension programs. “Pension Programs Around the World: New Comparative Global Policy Data” leverage data collected between 2009 and 2011 to describe the type, financing model, eligibility, and benefit amounts of pension systems in all 193 UN member states. This newly available comparative data can help policymakers and other users better understand worldwide trends and remaining challenges for pension systems around the world.
“Pension Programs Around the World” was published in the latest issue of the Journal of Comparative Policy Analysis. Its abstract can be consulted here.
