Albanians consume per capita 37% of the EU average, holding last position in Europe: Eurostat
Eurostat has published the latest data on the consumption per capita in Europe, and the report analyzes Albania as well.
The data has been translated into purchasing power standards, which means that the figures are not absolute, but are also converted on the basis of income, since a German and an Albanian cannot be compared in their unequal conditions.
From the data it turns out that, on average, an Albanian consumes per year as much as 37% of the EU average, so little more than a third of an average European.
At such a rate, Albania is the last in Europe, in the conditions when comparison is made equal.
Eurostat also states that compared to the previous year, Albanians are impoverished in this regard, as the rate was fixed at 38% of the EU average.
Figures are concerning, since they show not only the sharp difference with Europe but also with the neighbors.
An average Montenegrin consumes on average 50% more than an average Albanian in a year, according to Eurostat.
Better than us are even Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Serbia, etc. and then all European and regional countries.
Albanians consume a quarter of the Swiss nationals or even the Norwegians in a year.
The current consumer consumption indicator is a fairly accurate indicator of a country’s welfare and Albania’s ranking in the last position on the continent is an alert alarm for the country.
