Key trends in “No poverty” in the European Union show the following evidence (Eurostat Report, pp. 35 and ss):

  • Despite recent improvements, the EU remains far from its 2020 poverty target;
  • Income poverty was the most widespread form of poverty in the EU in 2017;
  • Considerable differences in the share of poverty exist within the EU and across the world;
  • Single households, migrants and people with lower education as well as their children face high risks of poverty or social exclusion;
  • Having a job is not a guarantee against poverty or social exclusion;
  • Poor people often suffer from inadequate housing conditions;
  • People who self-report unmet needs for medical care most commonly cite costs as the reason.
