Percentage of children aged below 15 years living in households that are at risk of poverty

This indicator allows an idea of the group of children/young people that are at risk of poverty and/or social exclusion as they live in single-parent households where the mother does not work, in households where neither of the two parents work, or in poor households.

According to Eurostat and LIS (Luxembourg Income Study) it is considered that a household with total income below 60% of the equivalised median disposable income (after social transfers) is at risk of poverty. The composition of the household has a bearing on the value of the at risk of poverty rate. Thus, households with dependent children have a higher risk of poverty than that of households without dependent children. Furthermore, the value of the at risk of poverty rate increases in households formed by one adult with at least one dependent child or in those households where neither of the two parents work.
