Between 1999 and 2011, the availability, distinct from participation, of employer-sponsored retirement plans in the United States declined from 61 percent to 53 percent. [Ghilarducci, Teresa and Saad-Lessler, Joelle. “Explaining the Decline in Offer Rate of Employer Retirement Plans Between 2001-2012,” Schwartz Center for Economic Policy Analysis and Department of Economics, The New School for Social Research, Working Paper Series, 2014. Forthcoming in the Industrial and Labor Relations Review.] All workers, regardless of sex, race, industry, firm size, and union status, experienced a drop in coverage rates. However, being in a union was somewhat protective; union workers experienced a 6 percent drop in coverage while non-union worker rates dropped 14 percent.
