Poverty on the Increase in the Netherlands

Poverty in the Netherlands increased greatly in 2012. This was concluded by both the Central Bureau for Statistics (CBS) and the Social and Cultural Planning Bureau(SCP). The CBS concluded that 9.4% of all households or 664,000 households have “a possible future of poverty.” Eight out of ten of these households have direct financial problems and need to borrow money more and more frequently. Both organizations believe that the increase in poverty will continue. Growth will be slower than in the recent past. www.trouw.nl/tr/nl/4492/Nederland/article/detail/3555290/2013/12/03/Armoede-in-Nederland-sterk-toegenomen.dhtml
