According to hvg.hu, Eurostat has revealed its statistics about poverty in the European Union’s countries.
Almost a quarter (25.6%) of Hungarians are threatened by poverty or social exclusion. The recently revealed statistics from 2017 are not the same as in 2016.
Eurostat took a step forward and compared all the European Union member states to each other. This way residents can see how poor their country is compared to another one.
Elderly people in Hungary are in the best situation. Only 16.8% of 65-year-old and older people are poor, because, unfortunately, many poor people do not live for long. This is the eleventh best data in the Union.
It can be shocking that Germany has the worst unemployment rate. The explanation is simple: if someone cannot find a job in Germany, which has the strongest labour market, is really in a big trouble.
