Latest release:
Nearly every fourth child in the EU is at risk of poverty or social exclusion
05 May 2020
In all, 24.2 per cent of children, or nearly 23 million, were at risk of poverty or social exclusion in the EU countries in 2017. At that time, 16 per cent, or around 172,000 children aged under 18, were at risk in Finland. Children's risk is higher than that of the whole population on the EU level, as 21.8 per cent of the citizens of the 28 EU countries were at risk of poverty or social exclusion. In Finland, the risk of children is slightly lower than the general risk of the population, as the risk of the whole population was 16.5 per cent in 2017. These data derive from the European Union Statistics on Income and Living Conditions, where Finlands data are based on Statistics Finlands statistics on living conditions.

Description: The statistics on living conditions describe the living conditions of the household population from different perspectives, such as risk of poverty or social exclusion, subjective well-being and livelihood, health and housing by population group in Finland. Data are collected yearly with the income and living conditions survey. These sample data are also used for the production of the income distribution statistics and Finland's data for Eurostat's EU-SILC survey. Some of the data published in the statistics are collected only at set intervals, but some yearly.
