Summary

Providing an in-depth analysis of the economic well-being of the elderly across five European countries - UK, Austria, Hungary, Poland and Slovenia - this book offers an assessment of the performance of national social security systems in terms of income provision for the elderly. Each country analysis strictly adheres to a common methodological framework. This enables meaningful cross-country comparisons, revealing important common developments in the economic well-being of the elderly in all five countries. The authors also examine country specific features and every country chapter is written by an expert in the field who has a thorough knowledge of both the national pension systems and the data sets on which the empirical analyses are based.
