Copia-di-SHORT-TERM-SERVICES-INDICATORS-2Introduction:

The European Statistics on Income and Living Conditions (EU-SILC) survey is an annual enquiry conducted by the National Statistics Office (NSO) among persons residing in private households in Malta and Gozo. Income statistics refer to calendar year 2018, while non-income components (such as material deprivation) refer to 2019, which is the data collection year.

Key facts:

● The average gross household income for 2018 as derived from EU-SILC 2019, is estimated at € 34,627, while the average disposable household income is estimated at € 28,505 (Table 2).

● The survey shows that the number of persons living in households with a national equivalised income below the at-risk-of-poverty line (€9,212) was 82,758. This translates into an at-risk-of-poverty (ARP) rate of 17.1 per cent, 0.3 percentage points higher than that recorded for the previous year (Table 3).

● In 2019, the severe material deprivation rate (SMD) among persons living in households was 3.6 per cent. This figure is 0.6 percentage points more than the same rate estimated from EU-SILC 2018. The two most influential variables contributing to this increase were: ability of households to spend one week’s annual holiday away from home; and ability of households to face unexpected financial expenses (Table 8).

● At 20.1 per cent, the at-risk-of-poverty or social exclusion rate (AROPE) increased by 1.1 percentage points when compared to EU-SILC 2018. AROPE provides the share of persons who are either at-riskof-poverty, severely materially deprived, or residing in a household with low work intensity (applicable only for persons aged 0-59) (Table 9)
