SummaryThe „Pension Maps“, a collaborative project of researchers from all over the world, aims to make pension systems visible and comparable at a glance. The Pension Maps, consisting of a clearly arranged graphic for each of the 29 countries studied, entails all relevant information on how old age security is organized in a country, to whom access is granted, how fragmented or universal a system is, and how high the average pension level is compared to the average in the EU and the OECD. In this way, the project contributes to a better understanding of the differences in old-age security systems.
