The difference between at-risk-of-poverty rate before social transfers and risk-of-poverty rate shows the impact of social transfers on reduction of the risk of poverty. With the deduction of social transfers (except old-age and survivors’ benefits) from disposable income,the at-risk-of-poverty rate would increase to 30.1 per cent. Social transfers had the largest impact on the at-risk-of-poverty rate of households with children: social transfers deducted, the at-risk-of-poverty rate in 2019 would increase from 18.4 to 32.8 per cent, children aged under 18 – from 22.7 to 40.6 per cent. As regards large families (two adults with three and more children), the at-risk-of-poverty rate, social transfers (except old-age and survivors’ benefits) deducted, would increase from 25.3 to 54 per cent.
