Croatia - Report compares labour markets and inequality - May 31, 2018

 A FES-report compares the SEE countries in the area of wages, tax policy and income redistribution. Inequality levels in Croatia are moderate to low, showing a gradual, downward trend, converging with the average level of inequality of EU28 countries. The redistributive impact of social transfers and pensions in the countries considered varies: for instance, social transfers and pensions accounted for a reduction of 19 Gini points in Croatia, 15 points in Macedonia, and as much as 24 points in Serbia in 2015 (as opposed to 21 points for the EU28 in 2015). Other forms of social transfers, including social assistance or unemployment benefits, had a substantial impact on inequality in Croatia, similar to that of the EU28.
