Serbia, like Hungary, is facing the problems of poverty and social exclusion.
Following a reduction in the number of impoverished population during 2006/2008, the number of
the poor once again indicated an increase in 2009. The data from the Household Budget Survey
2009 indicates that 6.9% of the citizens of Serbia lived below the absolute poverty line in 2009.
Households with less than 8,022 dinars per consumer unit were considered poor (slightly less
than 80 EUR). The number of the poor declined in urban areas – from 10.9% in 2008 to 9.1% in
2009, while the category of other settlements shows an increase in the number of the poor –
16.1% in 2008 to 19.5% in 2009.
