In 2019, 26.1% of adults in the EU with a disability (activity limitation) lived in households that reported having difficulties in making ends meet (i.e. whose financial resources did not cover their usual necessary expenses), compared with 16.0% among the adult population with no disability.
Among the EU Member States, approximately two-thirds of people with a disability faced financial difficulties in Greece (76.5%) and Bulgaria (65.7%). Just under half of the population were in this situation in Croatia (49.2%), Cyprus (43.2%) and Romania (40.9%).
At the other end of the scale, less than 20% of people with a disability had difficulties making ends meet in Finland (9.9%), Germany (10.4%), Sweden (13.1%), Luxembourg (14.0%), Denmark (15.8%), Austria (16.2%), the Netherlands (18.2%) and Estonia (19.6%).
