International Retirement Security Survey

Income security in retirement is a growing worldwide challenge as many nations face fiscal pressures, demographic challenges, and a redefinition of retirement among their populations. AARP commissioned a survey of the general population aged 30-65 in 10 developed nations--Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States--regarding their attitudes and behaviors surrounding retirement issues. The survey covered retirement expectations, preparations, and public policy options, as well as health care issues that these workers may face in retirement. Results revealed some unique approaches to retirement in the different nations, including attitudes on how retirement income security should be provided in the future. In other cases, results indicated the emergence of a potential consensus, as residents of different countries expressed common expectations and concerns regarding their approaching retirement years. An executive summary and power presentation of the detailed findings are available. Together with last year's survey of opinion leaders in the G-7 countries on this issue, the surveys provide provocative insight into how the developed nations are dealing with the future of retirement at a time of unprecedented demographic, economic, and social change.
