From the Paper:

"The decline in the importance of private defined benefit plans in relation to defined contribution plans has been attributed to certain factors (Ostaszewski 2001). These factors include costs of government regulation, societal and cultural changes, modified employer attitudes, and employees' insufficient knowledge about defined benefit plans. Some observers interpret the decline as the end of private defined benefit plans. The last 25 years were characterized by a change in the relationship between total compensation, including proprietor's income, and wages. A study conducted showed that the shift from defined benefit plans correlated with the shift from labor's wages. It underscored the importance of wages as an index for defined benefit plans. It also called attention to the weakness of the wage index in the national income, which pointed to the weakness of defined benefit plans. There were indications that both labor's wages and defined benefit plans were affected by changes in the national economy, the changing role of government as well as the changed views on risk perception and distribution."
