In 2010 as in 2009, around 23 % of the European population were considered to be at risk of poverty or social exclusion (AROPE), according to the definition adopted for the Europe 2020 strategy. The share of the population at risk of poverty or social exclusion was low in the Czech Republic, Sweden and the Netherlands,  around 15 %.

With a rate of 26.9 % in EU-27, children were at greater risk of poverty or social exclusion in 2010 than the rest of the population in 21 of the 25 Member States for which data are available. The only exceptions were Denmark, Slovenia, Finland and Sweden.
