Intergenerational transmission of poverty or how the living conditions during childhood influence the future life

Statbel, the Belgian statistical office, studied the intergenerational transmission of poverty within the EU-SILC survey. The survey respondents aged 25 to 59 were asked what their living conditions were when they were around 14.

The survey brings to light the effect of deprivations during teenage years on the financial situation in adulthood. Among the people who were living in a household facing great difficulties at the age of 14, 30.4% lived under the monetary poverty threshold in 2019. On the contrary, the current poverty rate only amounts to 7.7% for those who were living in a household in a very good financial health.
