Slovakia -Risk of poverty and working poor -August 28, 2013

The latest figures released by the Slovak Statistics Office (ŠÚ) show that some 13.2% of the population, or 715,000 people, was faced with the risk of poverty. The poverty limit was at €4,156 per year, which equals €346 a month for single-member households. The highest degree of risk was observed among jobless people, measured at 44.6%. This was a rise of 2% on a yearly basis. Households with three or more dependent children or single-parent households were also included among the groups at highest risk. Poverty among the working population decreased slightly, as 6.2% of working individuals faced the risk of poverty in 2012. The findings were extrapolated from data gathered from 6,000 households.
