SOCIAL PROTECTION STATISTICS: PENSION EXPENDURE AND PENSION BENEFICIARIES [9 February 2015]
Data from December 2014. Further Eurostat information, main tables and database.
This article presents statistics on pension expenditure and pension beneficiaries in the European Union (EU) collected through the European system of integrated social protection statistics (ESSPROS).
In 2012, just over a quarter of the EU population (26 %) - around 130 million people - received at least one pension (see Figure 1, data exclude Belgium). The proportion of the population receiving a pension is highest in Lithuania (31.5 %) and also exceeds 30 % in Bulgaria, Estonia and Slovenia, but is below 20 % in Ireland, Spain and Malta and only 14.8 % in Cyprus. The interpretation of such figures is, however, not straightforward, because the characteristics of the benefits they encompass may be quite different.
