Supplementary notes

The source adds the following information: "In the UK 900 employees and 100 fully retired people were interviewed to provide a contrast between the responses of current workers and those already in retirement. The survey did not include the unemployed, long-term incapacitated, homemakers, or the self-employed as each of these groups faces specific challenges in planning for retirement which requires specific public policy interventions."
