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).
