Sweden - Risk of poverty in 2015 - June 30, 2017

A report of the statistical office describes that more than 14 percent, or one out of seven people in the population were at risk of poverty in 2015. Nearly 9 percent were at persistent risk of poverty. This means that they were at risk of poverty in 2015 and during at least two out of the three preceding years. The percentage of people who were at persistent risk of poverty varies widely among different groups. Among single women with children, the proportion was 27%, while among cohabiting adults without children, the proportion was only 3%. Among children aged 0–19 years, the proportion was almost 12%.
