From 2015, deaths projected to outnumber births in the EU27
Population projections 2008-2060
Eurostat
26 Aug 2008 Europe (including EU) Pensioners & Retirement, European Union issues
The EU27 population is projected to increase from 495 million on 1 January 2008 to 521 million in 2035, and thereafter gradually decline to 506 million in 2060. The annual number of births is projected to fall over the period 2008-2060, while at the same time the annual number of deaths is projected to continue rising. From 2015 onwards deaths would outnumber births, and hence population growth due to natural increase would cease. From this point onwards, positive net migration would be the only population growth factor. However, from 2035 this positive net migration would no longer counterbalance the negative natural change, and the population is projected to begin to fall.

Classification of funded pension schemes in case of government responsibility or guarantee
New decision on deficit and debt
Eurostat
Mar 2004 Europe (including EU) Miscellaneous
Eurostat has taken a decision on the classification of some funded pension schemes where government is involved either as a manager of the flows of contributions and pension benefits or as a guarantor for the risk of defaulting payments of pensions. This decision does not cover the schemes organised by employers for their own staff (including specific schemes for civil servants organised by government). The decision specifies the cases where a pension scheme should not be treated as a social security scheme, with the consequence that the flows of contributions made to the scheme and of pension benefits paid by the scheme are not recorded as government revenue or as government expenditure and, therefore, do not have an impact on government deficit or surplus.

Special Feature on Pension Funds (extract)
Statistical information for pension funds and insurance services
Eurostat
Dec 2002 Norway, Iceland, Europe (including EU), Switzerland European Union members
This research combines statistical information for both pension funds (1997 to 2000) and insurance services (1996 to 2000). It shows that the volume of total contributions to autonomous pension funds reached Euro 84bn in 2000, growing by 62% over the period 1997-2000. The total expenditure of these funds increased by 47% during the same period. The number of insurance enterprises decreased by around 10% from 1996 to 2000, whereas the total gross premiums written increased by nearly 50% during the same period. This reflects the continuing concentration in the sector.

Eurostat
Oct 2002 Europe (including EU) Scheme Issues & Trends
This report concentrates on autonomous pension funds (i.e. separate units having their main activity in pension funding and which aim at providing employees and self-employed persons or their beneficiaries with supplementary pension benefits in addition to compulsory social security). In the 1999-2000 period, there has been an increasing membership of pension funds in most of the EU Member States and the number of pension funds increased in nearly half of the Member states.
