Poverty and social exclusion threatened 14.8 percent of Slovakia's inhabitants, about 800,000 people.
The number of people who faced these issues in 2020 decrease by 1.6 percent from 2019 year-on-year. In that year, 80,000 more people were in those precarious situations, the SITA newswire reported.
The data stems from research into income and living conditions by EU SILC 2020, published in a press statement by the Slovak Statistics Office.
Some statisticians claim that the findings may not have detected the effects of the coronavirus crisis in society, which they expect to be revealed by research conducted in 2021.
