Living conditions of Czech farmers according to the EU statistics on income
AbstractThe paper deals with the assessment of income situation of the Czech households with the head person working or self-employed in the farm sector. Actual analyses result from initial consideration of the rise and dynamics of income disparities in our country. Primary data source are obtained from the European Union survey project - Statistics on Income and Living Conditions (EU-SILC). Our reference period, in view of data availability at the time of the article processing, is represented by the 2007 year. The core studied variable is represented by the volume of the income calculated for each household. The information obtained by study of this variable was complemented by other variables enabling the logical validity check and analysis of the socioeconomic environment of households under examination. Main findings and conclusions are derived from the analysis of the decile and quintile classification of the relevant equivalized income datasets. The prime goal of the study was to quantify the share of the Czech agriculture related households living on the monthly income less then 60 % of the nationwide median value of the income variable under consideration. The households identified with such income position are referred as “households-at-risk-of-income poverty“.
