Latest release:
Women are more at risk of poverty or social exclusion than men in nearly all European countries
05 May 2021
In most European countries, women's risk of poverty or social exclusion was higher than men's in 2018. Of the persons at risk of poverty or social exclusion in 28 EU countries, around 50 million were men and 57 million women in 2018. A total of 20.4 per cent of men and 22.3 per cent of women were at risk of poverty or social exclusion. Only in Denmark the risk experienced by men was slightly higher than that by women, but the difference is only 0.5 percentage points. The Baltic countries have the biggest differences in the risk experienced by women and men. Besides Denmark, the difference in the risk experienced by women and men is in Finland the smallest in the EU. These data derive from the European Union Statistics on Income and Living Conditions, where Finland's 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.
