PENMICRO
Monitoring pension developments through micro socio economic instruments based on individual data sources: feasibility study (PENMICRO)

Lead researcher: Róbert Gál

The overarching aim of this ongoing project is to develop an analytical framework capable of capturing the relevant aspects of micro instruments Member States apply in modelling future developments in their pension schemes and the datasets behind them, and to apply this framework in describing and comparing the national approaches.

The research team will carry out three main tasks:
  1. Provide a description of the available modelling instruments and the datasets behind them for each Member State.
  2. Describe the outcomes of these instruments (focusing mostly on Member States applying the most developed tools).
  3. Provide an evaluation of similarities and differences between national models and approaches.
Commissioned by: Employment, Social Affairs, and Equal Opportunities DG/E/4

Generational Accounting - Generational accounts in Hungary, 1992-2001 (GA HU)(Ministry of Finance)
TÁRKI has conducted several generational accounting exercises, the most recent of which produced a time series of intergenerational balances for Hungary for each year between 1992 and 2001. That is to say, the same calculation was performed on the budget of the general government - applying the same set of assumptions on tax incidence, the breakdown of household consumption by individual household members, and other relevant methodological issues - in order to get truly comparable results. The time series reveal a strong political business cycle of public spending.

Pension reform
Pension reform - Pension Reform and Intergenerational Redistribution in Hungary (National Research and Development Fund)
In a generational accounting analysis, we separated the long-term effects of the main components of the comprehensive 1997 Hungarian pension reform. This calculation was later revised and extended using retrospective data in order to quantify intergenerational redistribution in the Hungarian pension system through the complete life-cycles of subsequent generations.
