Executive Summary

Retirement Annuity and Employment-Based Pension Income—Recent data from the March 2002 Current Population Survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau confirm earlier findings that gender, marital status, age, education, and other demographic variables have a significant impact on the likelihood of a worker receiving a retirement annuity and/or employment-based pension payment in retirement. There may also be a strong correlation between these same variables and the amount of pension income received from employment-based retirement plans. This article provides data on these relationships.
