Discussion Paper PI-1701
Pensions Institute and Cass Business School
Mar 2017 Europe (including EU) Longevity, Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement, European Union members

While the most popular indicator of expenditure is pension spending as a share of GDP, the report proposes two alternative indicators. The first proposed indicator is the quotient of pension expenditure and GDP and old-age dependency ratio, while the second replaces the old-age dependency ratio with the proportion of population aged 65 and over.
