The purpose is to try to understand what is the real situation of families and individuals across countries and socio-economic categories. For those of them still at work we are interested to know how they are preparing for old days’ consumption, and, for those already retired, how they meet their old age needs. We know that for some of them, facing liquidity constraints or bad health, consumption will be restricted, whereas others will be able to save from their current income, while a third group will be composed of net dissavers. In this contribution, we are particularly interested in the distributive issues pertaining to these three dimensions taken together. In the first section we explain some data issues and methodological choices. The second section is devoted to the presentation of Lorenz curves and Gini coefficients by macro-regions and countries, and the third section to a comparative study of I-C-W distribution across age categories. Some conclusions and potential lines of research for the future end this contribution. [less ▲]
