Description

This first issue in the current four-volume series of Social Security Programs Throughout the World reports on the countries of Europe, published in collaboration with the International Social Security Association. The combined findings of this series, which also includes volumes on Asia and the Pacific, Africa, and the Americas, are published at six-month intervals over a two-year period.

Each volume highlights features of social security programs in the particular region. The term social security in this report refers to pro­grams established by statute that insure individuals against interruption or loss of earning power and for certain special expenditures arising from marriage, birth, or death. This definition also includes allow­ances to families for the support of children.

This publication provides a cross-national comparison of social security systems, summarizing the five main social insurance programs:

  1. old age, disability, and survivors;
  2. sickness and maternity;
  3. work injury;
  4. unemployment; and
  5. family allowances.

The information contained in these volumes is crucial to the efforts, and those of researchers in other countries, to review different ways of approaching social security challenges that will enable us to adapt our social security systems to the evolving needs of individuals, households, and families. These efforts are particularly important as each nation faces major demographic changes, especially the increasing number of aged persons, as well as economic and fiscal issues.
