6. ECR - The Last 30 Years ‘77 -’78: 20.40% ‘87 -’88: 16.83% ‘97 -’98: 1.25% ‘78 -’79: 21.40% ‘88 -’89: 14.79% ‘98 -’99: 1.42% ‘79 -’80: 22.49% ‘89 -’90: 6.87% ‘99 -’00: 1.43% ‘80 -’81: 23.49% ‘90 -’91: 6.84% ‘00 -’01: 0.43% ‘81 -’82: 23.49% ‘91 -’92: 6.64% ‘01 -’02: 0.36% ‘82 -’83: 23.49% ‘92 -’93: 8.00% ‘02 -’03: 0.36% ‘83 -’84: 22.90% ‘93 -’94: 8.41% ‘03 -’04: 2.52% ‘84 -’85: 22.80% ‘94 -’95: 7.24% ‘04 -’05: 5.63% ‘85 -’86: 21.40% ‘95 -’96: 6.37% ‘05 -’06: 7.97% ‘86 -’87: 18.80% ‘96 -’97: 3.57% ‘06 -’07: 8.60% Slide #12 - Here are the ECR’s over the last 20 years. Both the highest and lowest ECR’s in the 77 year history of the Retirement System have been set during this 20 year period. The ECR was much higher in the early ‘80’s. This is primarily because the full brunt of the cost impact of the major benefit improvements of 1970, such as the career plan and three-year FAS, was being felt. Additionally the rates of return on the capital markets during the ‘70’s was less than stellar. The rate has steadily declined since then, however, and has been in the single digits for the last ten years.Slide #12 - Here are the ECR’s over the last 20 years.
