The assessment of Economic and Social Vulnerability in Georgia was launched in March 2013.
The research examines the sources of most prevalent vulnerabilities in Georgia and compares the status of disadvantaged groups with the average situation in the country. It reveals that over 70% of Georgians are vulnerable in one or another way, and calls for diverse policy measures to respond to their needs.
The research sample exceeds 4000 households across Georgia while the disadvantaged groups include the economically vulnerable, persons with disabilities, the displaced, and people living high up in the mountains.
The report results from the insights from a wide range of national and international experts, individuals and organizations. Statistical information is provided by the National Statistics Office of Georgia - GEOSTAT.
