2014: % of people aged 65+ at risk of poverty (AROP)

The latest available data (dating from 2014) show that the AROP rate for those aged 65 or over has, in fact, fallen since 2007 (pre-crisis) whilst it has increased for those aged below 65. The age 65+ AROP rate for the EU-27 is 13.7% (EU-28, 13.8%) which is a 4.6 percentage points (p.p.) fall from the AROP rate in 2007. And in contrast to the pre-crisis situation in 2007, the 2014 data show that those aged 65+ in the EU now have a lower AROP rate than the rest of the adult population. For the EU-28, 13.8% of those aged 65+ are AROP compared to 18% for adults below age 65. For the EU-27 the figures are more or less identical (13.7% for those aged 65+ vs 18% for those under age 65). For the 19 euro-area countries, the AROP rate figures are 13.3% aged 65+ and 18.1% for those under age 65.
