ABSTRACT

The aim of the article is to present the results of the empirical analysis of the level of pension systems’ efficiency of EU and EFTA countries in the years 2005–2006 on the basis of the proposed synthetic measure. We discuss the results of the initial analysis, linear ordering of pensions systems, “maps of systems efficiency” and grouping (cluster analysis). The presented results allow us to show a group of countries with the highest level of pension systems’ efficiency and countries similar to Poland with respect to the examined efficiency. The obtained results reveal a close similarity between pension systems of countries of Central and Eastern Europe.

KEYWORDS
