Portugal, Social Balance 2020 Report

The yearly report Portugal, Balanço Social [Portugal, Social Balance] aims to draw a socioeconomic portrait of Portuguese families and provide a basis for cross-sectional discussion on poverty and social exclusion in the country. The document describes poverty regarding income and addresses differences in employment status, access to education and health, housing conditions, and social and political participation. It also mentions the persistence of poverty, regional differences, inequality in income distribution, the impact of public policies in the mitigation of poverty, and the population's perceptions and attitudes towards the welfare state.
