This article extends the empirical knowledge of private saving behavior by exploiting data for a large sample of industrial and developing countries and by looking at a broad set of possible determinants of private saving. It uses both time-series and cross-sectional information because the variability of potential explanatory variables differs in those two dimensions. In particular, some variables seem to explain persistent country differences (for example, dependency ratios or relative per capita income), while others are correlated with year-to-year fluctuations (for example, the terms of trade or growth in gross domestic product?
