Percentage of children aged below 15 years by work intensity of the household

This indicator allows a quantitative idea of the group of children/ young people that live in households where only one or neither of the two parents is working and that, therefore, are at greater risk of poverty and/or social exclusion.

The work intensity of a household is the ratio of the total number of months that all working-age household members have worked during the income reference year and the total number of months the same household members theoretically could have worked in the same period. A working-age person is defined as a person aged 18-59 years, excluding students in the age group between 18 and 24 years. Households composed only by children, students below 25 years and/or persons aged 60 years or over are excluded from the calculation of the indicator.
