More than 1.5 million persons in Austria have still been at risk of poverty or social exclusion in 2018
Nevertheless, certain groups of the population faced a higher risk of getting in a socially disadvantageous position among which are single-parent-households, families with three or more children, long-term unemployed, persons with a foreign citizenship and those with a low level of formal education. Also, 372 000 children and persons younger than 20 years were living in households that were at risk of poverty or social exclusion. They were more often deprived from basic needs than their fellows from non-poor households and experienced a lack of possibilities for social participation as the EU-SILC results show.
