A new academic study revealed that only 25 percent of Mexico's senior population counts on a retirement pension, with the remainder continuing to work or relying on family or community support to survive.

The study was carried out by Veronica Montes de Oca from the Institute for Social Investigation and Marissa Vivaldo Martinez from the Zaragoza Faculty of Higher Studies at the National Autonomous University of Mexico and was unveiled on National Senior's Day, which was celebrated Sunday.
