At-risk-of-poverty rate and social exclusion benefits

The at-risk-of-poverty rate refers to persons with an income below 60% of the national median. The table overleaf shows for each EU country the at-risk-of-poverty rate in 2014, 1) as a percentage of all households, 2) as the share of those at risk among children and young people under 18, and 3) as a percentage of persons in the working population, with different levels of education (Ireland: 2012).
Expenditure to combat social exclusion shows benefits in cash or in kind (other than healthcare), for 2013, except for Ireland, Greece and Poland where data for 2012 are shown.
