Description of indicator
Low-income earners (persons at risk of poverty) are considered those whose household's total disposable money income per consumption unit (so-called equivalent income) is lower than 60 per cent of the equivalent median income of all households. The proportion of those below this income threshold is called at-risk-of-poverty rate. The euro-denominated threshold for low income varies by year.
