SOCIAL SECURITY PROGRAMS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD: EUROPE, 2014 [29 September 2014]
[full-text, 331 pages]
This report, which is a part of a four-volume series, provides a cross-national comparison of the social security systems in 45 countries in Europe. It summarizes the five main social insurance programs in those countries: old-age, disability, and survivors; sickness and maternity; work injury; unemployment; and family allowances. The other regional volumes in the series focus on the social security systems of countries in Asia and the Pacific, Africa, and the Americas. Together, the reports provide important information for researchers and policymakers who are reviewing different ways of approaching social security challenges and adapting the systems to the evolving needs of individuals, households, and families.
