Abstract

The article focuses on issues of households at risk of poverty in a relative conception. Income poverty represents a situation when the threshold of 0.6 of median income is not achieved. The analysis of a broader definition of poverty bases on identification and assessment of material deprivation factors, which include: Financial stress, Housing conditions, Availability of consumer durables and Basic needs. Data sources are based EU-SILC dataset. The presented analysis focuses on selected EU countries, namely Czech Republic, Finland, France, Spain and United Kingdom. The result is the identification of problem areas that cause deprivation symptoms.
