For fiscal years ending in 2003 through the recently released 2007, this chart shows pension benefit obligation funded ratios for pension sponsors of the S&P 500 (yellow line), as contrasted with funded ratios segregated by the pension plan sponsors in each of the ten major S&P industry sectors, as characterized via the Global Industry Classification Standard. Telecommunication Services companies have the best funded pension plans, while Energy companies – carrying greater proportions of less well funded foreign plans – are bringing up the rear.

(And for anyone caring to make any sense out of the muddle in the middle, as always my charts and images click through to larger gallery versions.)
