Changes from 2013 to 2014 | Melbourne Mercer Global Pension Index : Melbourne Mercer Global Pension Index

Changes from 2013 to 2014

The index has been expanded in 2014 to include five new countries; Austria, Finland, Ireland, Italy and South Africa.

These additions continue the theme of  onsidering a variety of retirement income systems from countries with different economic and political backgrounds. This highlights an important characteristic of the index; to enable comparisons of different systems around the world with a wide range of design features and norms. Although four of the new countries are from Europe, these systems generate quite different scores from each other, particularly when the sustainability sub-index is considered.

We have also added two new questions into the adequacy sub-index to provide greater depth.
