What can we learn about Pensions from the FINDEX data?

Z. Majoka and R. Palacios | The World Bank

This paper uses the FINDEX and administrative data to estimate the gender, age and income composition of workers covered by a mandated pension scheme in a large number of developing countries. We find that the pension coverage gender gap is around 25 percentage points; men and women are 63 and 37 percent of those covered, respectively. It also provides evidence on the determinants of voluntary savings for old age.
