In 2017, the average household net income (31,393 euros per year) still increased both at current prices (+2.6%) and at constant prices (+1.2%). However, income inequality did not reduce: the total income of the wealthiest households continues to be more than six times the poorest ones’. Even still very high, the share of population at-risk of poverty or social exclusion decreased compared to 2017 (from 28.9% to 27.3%) due to a lower incidence of severe material deprivation (-1.6 percentage points), while the share of population at-risk of poverty remained constant at 20.3%.
