The purpose of this publication is to examine how living conditions, levels of poverty, and the patterns of entering and getting out of poverty differ depending on age and gender, and the different life stages. This analysis provides recent statistical information on poverty and social exclusion in the European Union and describes how poverty has particularly affected, in a differentiated manner, certain social groups since the beginning of the Great Recession.
