Severe material deprivation rate 2017

Share of severely materially deprived people down to 6.7% in the EU.

Around 33 million people in this situation in the EU, according to early estimates for 2017.

In 2017, 6.7% of the population or around 33 million people in the European Union (EU) were severely materially deprived.

This means that they cannot afford at least four of the following items, which are considered by most people to be desirable or necessary to lead an adequate life:

  • pay their bills on time;
  • keep their home adequately warm;
  • face unexpected expenses;
  • eat meat (or fish or the vegetarian equivalent) regularly;
  • take a one week holiday away from home;
  • a TV;
  • a washing machine;
  • a car;
  • a telephone.

The 2017 data reflect the continued downward trend in the proportion of persons severely materially deprived in the EU since its peak of 9.9% in 2012.
