4. Main Eurostat Indicators

(The corresponding Main indicators normally used at EU level to evaluate activities)

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.
