Poverty, Eurostat: 4 out of 10 Albanians do not have "pocket money"
According to the data of the "European Statistics Agency", for the year 2020, Albania records the second highest rate of people who are unable to spend a small amount of money every week for themselves according to employment status and income .
About 38.9% of the respondents in our country said that it is impossible for them to spend a certain amount of money every week to perform a fun activity. This norm has positioned Albania in second place, leading the region, but almost also Europe. In the first place in Europe with the highest rate of people who cannot afford to spend a small amount of money every week on themselves is Romania with 40.1%. Albania, positioned in second place, is followed by Greece and Bulgaria with 37.1% and 26.1%. Referring to EUROSTAT figures, although Albania is positioned in the second place, it is noted that there is a very small difference of only 1.2%, compared to the rate of the first country, ie Romania. On the other hand, the European Union average for this indicator for 2020 is 11.9%.
If we stop to analyze the results of the countries of the region, we see that they are ranked above the average of the European Union. Montenegro comes after Albania with a rate of up to 25.3%, followed by North Macedonia with 20.9% and Serbia with 16%. Meanwhile, the Czech Republic, Estonia and Cyprus are the countries with the lowest rate of people who cannot afford to spend a small amount of money each week on themselves.
If we go deeper to see this indicator according to employment status, we see that for the "employed" category, Albania ranks third in Europe with 26.2%, for the "unemployed" category it ranks second with 48.4%, while for the "pensioners" category, Albania holds the first place with 50.5%. Even for the richest, those who are classified in the 5th quintile, i.e. the richest 20% of the population, Albania has the highest rate in Europe. According to Eurostat, 18.2% of the richest people in our country have no "pocket money"

According to the data, Albania ranks third in Europe, with 54.5% of the respondents saying that they cannot afford to spend a small amount of money every week on themselves. In first and second place are Romania and Greece, respectively, with 68.1% and 65.4%, while the average of the European Union for this indicator is 28.1%.
