Anchored child poverty (2015)

The largest decline (-50%) happened in Greece, driven in large part by a sharp increase in unemployment (80% of poor children in Greece had a father working for most of the year in 2007, compared to only 66% in 2014). Over the same period, the real minimum wage also fell by around 20%.

Note: The ‘anchored’ poverty rate sets the poverty line at its 2005 level with yearly adjustments for price inflation.
