The Czech Republic has had one of the lowest monetary poverty rates out of the EU countries, which is also a result of a low prevalence of in-work poverty. Despite these rather benign aggregate figures, working poor still represent a significant proportion of persons living in monetary poverty in the Czech Republic. The purpose of this study is then to identify population groups that experience the highest rates of in-work poverty, according to multiple criteria such as age, gender, household type, number and age of children, level of education and the most frequent activity of other members of a household. These calculations were undertaken using EU-SILC microdata.
