Latvia -Social protection spending too low -June 04, 2013

The World Bank published the study Latvia: Who Is Unemployed, Inactive or Needy? According to this study social protection is still comparatively low when compared to the other EU member states, and the system of benefits is not favourable enough for low-income residents. The average spending on social protection in 2009 was 13% of gross domestic product, while the EU's average figure was 21%.
