Milestones in the History of the Swiss Pension System: A Politico-Economic Analysis

Abstract: This paper empirically analyses two important events in the history of the Swiss pay-asyou- go pension system (AHV/AVS): First, its introduction in 1947, and second, the substantial structural reforms of the 10th revision in 1995. Approving vote shares are estimated with a grouped logit model. Both voting outcomes can be relatively well explained by a combination of demographic factors, such as age and especially family structure, and socio-economic variables, such as language and religion.
