The main purpose of the study is to analyse the poverty level changes in the chosen
European Union countries in years 2006-2014. The poverty and inequality issue
gained a global dimension. Income inequality in most countries is significantly
higher than thirty years ago. Analysis was based on the statistical data source The
European Union Statistics on Income and Living Conditions (EU-SILC) for four
countries: the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia and the method of
the data analysis has been used. The Gini coefficient and a people at-risk-ofpoverty
or social exclusion indexes were used for this analysis. Differences in the
level of poverty depends on the following determinants: the age, the territorial
location, the size of the town and the most frequent activity status. Results of
research shows that main groups exposed to the poverty in the chosen EU countries
are above all unemployed persons and their families, young persons, children and
inhabitants of towns, suburbs and rural areas. Inhabitants from outlying districts,
far from the capital city of the country are threatened with the higher level of
poverty in each analysed country. The results of the research prove that the poverty
at different levels afflict different social groups.
