Early estimates of income and poverty in the EU in 2020

In 2020, the year of the COVID-19 outbreak, the median employment income of the working age population (18-64) in the EU decreased by 7% compared with 2019. However, the median disposable household income as well as the at-risk-of-poverty rate remained stable, with varying trends across countries.

This information comes from the early estimates on income inequality in 2020 published by Eurostat today.
