Jan 11, 2024 5  pages


Recent data from the Current Population Survey are particularly valuable because they are taken at the worker level, as opposed to the employer level, making it possible to determine differences in retirement plan participation by various worker characteristics. This Fast Fact examines how plan participation differs by race/ethnicity, as well as how those differences are affected by other socioeconomic and demographic variables such as income, age, educational status, gender, and employer size.
