Headline: Proportion of Germany's population at risk of poverty or social exclusion nearly unchanged

WIESBADEN – 20.0% of Germany’s population, or 16.1 million people, were at risk of poverty or social exclusion in 2015. The share has remained nearly unchanged since 2008. This is a result of the EU-SILC (LEBEN IN EUROPA) survey. The Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) also reports that, for the period examined, the proportion of poor or socially excluded people in the European Union as a whole was always considerably higher than in Germany (2015: 23.7%).
