Note: The chart shows percentages of those who indicated 1-5 (not worried at all and not worried) and 6–10 (worried and extremely worried) on a 1–10 scale. This was recorded by asking the respondents a question: ‘On a scale of 1 to 10, how worried are you, if at all, that your income in old age will not be sufficient? 1 means not worried at all, 10 means extremely worried.’ The percentage point (pp) differences between men and women that are statistically significant are indicated with black overlay.
