The number of people living in poverty has risen by 4.4 million since the country was battered by an economic crisis to reach 11.7 million, or one in four. The proportion of people living in social exclusion stood at 25.1% in mid-2013, up from 16.3% in 2007, a year before a decade-long housing bubble collapsed sending the economy into a tailspin. Of the 11.7 million people who live in social exclusion, 77.1% do not have a job and 61.7% struggle to keep a roof over their heads.
