The OECD International Network on Financial Education has developed a questionnaire to undertake an international comparison of levels of financial literacy. This questionnaire takes into account knowledge, behaviours and attitudes related to personal finances, and seeks to identify similarities and differences in levels of financial literacy around the world. It is currently being piloted in 12 countries, with the expectation that the final survey instrument will become an essential tool for policy makers, academics and financial education programme designers seeking to identify robust questions to assess financial literacy.

Netspar, Network for Studies on Pensions, Aging and Retirement, is a thinktank and knowledge network. Netspar is dedicated to promoting a wider understanding of the economic and social implications of pensions, aging and retirement in the Netherlands and Europe.
