The Gender Pension Gap in Europe: Toward Understanding Diversity
The previous chapter explored the aggregate behavior of the gender pension gap across the EU and over time. This chapter tries to examine how that gender pension gap varies according to characteristics of individuals, such as education, income, and marital status. The main object of our interest is the way the pension gender gap results from and reflects key characteristics of the population and their histories.
