The report compares the total pension contribution level in nine European countries: Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland. The comparison includes pension provision in the statutory and occupational pension schemes. In addition to the contribution level, the division of contribution income into employer, employee and tax revenue shares is analyzed.
