Pension Institutions and Income Inequality across European Societies: Denmark, Germany, Sweden, and the United Kingdom,” by Jorg Neugschwender (Working Paper No. 627, January 2015, .pdf format, 22p.).

Abstract:

This paper analyses major pension system regulation in four European countries: Denmark, Germany, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. It is focused on the government’s and social partner’s efforts to provide old-age security benefits, and how these regulatory approaches have shaped the current structure of the public-private mix of pension protection systems. The different regulatory approaches may, in the end, have quite diverse implications on income inequality among the elderly. A historical institutional overview is provided for each of the four countries. The study also used multiple years of cross-sectional data (around 2000 – wave V and mid of 2000s – wave VI) from the Luxembourg Income Study Database to show current outcomes of the different combinations of the public-private mixes. The results showed a strong trend from earlier to later years towards a higher relevance of private pensions in the public-private mix. The Swedish and German systems relied more on employment-related public systems fare better in terms of living standards than the Danish and British systems that combined public minimum pension schemes for a long time only with mostly voluntary occupational systems. Private pensions strongly affected the income position of high-income pensioners. However, also the structure of public pension benefits had a poverty decreasing effect for low-income groups.

CAAR – Luxembourg Income Study Working Paper – March 19, 2014

Who can (still) afford to retire early? Cross-country comparison of incomes of senior workers and young retirees using LIS data for 2007 & 2010,” by Carmen D. Petrovici and Jorg Neugschwender (LIS Working Paper No. 608, March 2014, .pdf format, 37p.).

Abstract:

The aim of this paper is to compare the economic situation of young retirees with their peers who decided to continue their working life before and during the recent economic crisis using the micro-data from the Luxembourg Income Study Database (LIS) for four countries (Greece, Spain, the UK and the US) for the years 2007 and 2010. In order to have comparable samples across countries with different institutional settings, we delimit our sample to the age group up to ten years prior to the statutory retirement age. In a first section we look at the income mix of early retirees and senior workers from a gender perspective taking into account the disposable household income. In a second section, we apply multinominal logistic regression models to explain the labour market status of seniors, focusing on the income predictors, distinguishing between personal income derived from the labour market participation, other personal income and other household income. We consider as well the alternative exit pathways from the labour market such as unemployment, disability and other types of inactivity. Our results show changes over time in the impact of incomes from different sources on the labour market status of seniors as well as gendered life courses. The paper contributes to the literature by a comparative analysis of the labour market behaviour in conjunction with income from different sources before and after the crisis.
