The national statistics agency said the incidence of families in absolute poverty was up from 6.4% in 2019 to 7.7% in 2020, which means over two million households were in absolute poverty, up 335,000.

It said the incidence for individuals rose from 7.7% to 9.4%, meaning 5.6 million people are in absolute poverty, up by over a million in a year, ANSA reports.

The rise registered in the year of the COVID-19 pandemic means the reduction in poverty levels achieved in 2019 has been reversed, ANSA reports.
