In the recently released report for 2013, 52% of households were at risk, a marginal improvement from the 2010 rate of 53%. The result is surprising, considering the rise in the stock market over those three years and the beginning of a rebound in housing prices, two factors that are key in influencing the overall retirement security picture.
