According to the report of "Business Review", about half of all Romanian children are in danger of social exclusion or poverty; this number is well over the European average and the highest amongst EU member states.

In 2016, in Romania, the share of children increased from 48.1 percent to 49.2 percent while in Greece it increased from 28.7 percent in 2010 to 37.5 percent in 2016; and in Cyprus, where the increase was of 7.8 percent, in Sweden, 5.4 percent, and in Italy, where the increase was of 1.1 percent.

In Romania the number is increasing despite of the decrease registered between 2010-2016 in most European countries. Denmark, Finland, Slovenia and Czech Republic are the EU countries where children are least exposed to poverty  and social exclusion.
