International Day for the Eradication of Poverty

Published 17.10.2020.

The Statistical Office of the Republic of Serbia published the data on poverty and equality in 2019 in the Republic of Serbia. The data indicate the decrease of the proportion of persons at risk of poverty by 1.1 percentage points (23.2% in 2019, compared to 24.3% in 2018), while the at-risk-of-poverty-or-social-inclusion rate has dropped from 34.3% to 31.7%, which is comparable to the rates of some EU Members States. At the same time, the risk of poverty and severe material deprivation was faced by 8.9% of the population.

Considered by age groups, children up to 18 years of age (28.9%) and youth aged 18–24 (25.6%) faced higher risk of poverty, while the group with the lowest at-risk-of-poverty rate were persons over the age of 65 (21.1%). Pensions and social transfers (financial social assistance and child allowance) significantly contribute to the decrease of the at-risk-of-poverty rate. Without social transfers, the at-risk-of-poverty rate would have been five percentage points higher (28.3%, instead of 23.2%), and without social transfers and pensions it would be 23 percentage points higher (46.6%, instead of 23.2%).
