‘The future of retirement’ around the world

Reply Thu 19 May, 2005 07:25 am
An interesting report was produced by HSBC and they claim that it is "the world's most comprehensive study on global attitudes to ageing and retirement". 10 diverse countries were surveyed and the results and analysis are available here. With ageing populations, increasing urbanisation and changes in family structure, the future for older people will probably be different from that previously.

The study examines attitudes in Brazil, Canada, mainland China and Hong Kong, France, India, Japan, Mexico, the UK and the USA - countries and territories which contain over half of the world's people and combine to give a representative sample of the global population.

You can download the entire report or view it by section here.

I just gave the report a quick once over but I have to say that I'm a little leary of their results based on what I've seen thudfar.

In one of their charts for example, labeled "Attitudes by country", the people in the UK, Hong Kong and France gave much more positive responses (over 50 higher) than the people in Japan yet Japan somehow comes up with a higher rating than the other 3 countries in that particular category.

It looks like their "claim" is more a of a sales pitch. Wink
