This research, funded by the Pensions Council, finds that Ireland has a gender pension gap of 35%. The gap is primarily driven by the fact that women are less likely to receive a private or occupational pension.

The ESRI study examines the pension income of men and women, the driving factors behind the gender pension gap and income poverty in old age.
