Changes from 2012 to 2013 | Melbourne Mercer Global Pension Index : Melbourne Mercer Global Pension Index


Changes from 2012 to 2013


The index was expanded in 2013 to include two additional countries; namely Indonesia and Mexico.

These additions continue the theme of considering a variety of retirement income systems from countries with different economic and political backgrounds.

This highlights an important characteristic of the index; that is, to enable comparisons of retirement income systems around the world with a wide range of design features and norms.

We have also added one new question and improved five questions this year.
