New Survey | A Compendium of Findings About American Workers

Since 1998, the Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies (TCRS) has conducted national surveys of U.S. business employers and workers regarding their attitudes toward retirement. The overall goals for the study are to illuminate emerging trends, promote awareness, and help educate the public. This report is an exploration of retirement preparedness of American workers that offers perspectives on retirement confidence, access to employer sponsored retirement benefits, savings rates, and planning related activities. It is comprised of these chapters:

  • The American Worker - An Overview. This chapter contains a comprehensive set of more than 50 key measures of retirement preparedness and 5-year trend analysis looking at overall survey findings among workers of for profit companies of 10 or more employees.
  • Influences of Demographics on Retirement Preparations. These chapters are demographic segmentation analyses by employer size, generation, gender, household income, level of education, and ethnicity. Each chapter presents a concise set of approximately 30 key measures for each demographic segment.

We hope that you find this compendium to be a helpful source of retirement-related research and survey data. If you are seeking survey data that you do not find in this report, please contact TCRS at info@transamericacenter.org.
