Sub-target for the reduction of poverty in jobless households

 
The sub-target for the reduction of poverty in jobless households is to reduce the concentration of the population in consistent poverty in these households. Jobless households are measured using household work intensity. Very low work intensity households comprise two-thirds of all those in consistent poverty, which is linked to their high poverty risk (20 per cent).
