On the topic of Gender statistics, the section on persons at-risk-of-poverty or social exclusion provides information on the dimensions income poverty (risk of poverty, low household income relative to the median of the population), severe material and social deprivation (absolute poverty according to a European minimum standard of living) and no or very low work intensity in the household. Gender-specific differences cannot be shown on the household level, or can only be shown to a certain extent, since a pooling of resources and an equal distribution among household members is assumed. Differences in the risk of poverty for women and men can therefore only be interpreted for households with one adult (single-person households, single-parent households).

Further information can be found on our website under Poverty.
