The level for the EU-28 is also 6.2% in 2014. However, for the euro-area 19, there was no change, with the level of severe material deprivation remaining at 4.9% of the population. As with the AROP measure, there was considerable variation between Member States and in how the level evolved between 2007 and 2014. Increases in severe material deprivation were seen in seven Member States, with Malta showing the highest increase at 5.0 p.p. However, at EU level, these were outweighed by falls elsewhere, with five Member States recording double digit p.p. falls with Romania (24.1 p.p. fall) and Bulgaria (26.9 p.p. fall) showing the most substantial improvement.
