Almost every Slovenian household had a telephone (99%), a washing machine (98%) and a TV set (97%) in 2016, shows data from the Statistics Office, as reported by STA on January 17, 2018. Computers were stationed in 77% of households.

In an overview of Slovenian households, the Statistics Office said that 84% of households had a clean environment, 95% of households were properly lit and 94% were adequately heated.

A bit more than a third of Slovenian households (36%) had no problems getting through 2016, with the rest running into difficulties to make ends meet.

In addition, 15% of households were late in paying housing costs because of financial troubles at least once in the 12 months prior to the survey.

The at-risk-of-poverty threshold in 2016 stood at EUR 616 net for a single-person household, with one in seven or 280,000 Slovenians living below the threshold, down from 287,000 in 2015.

More than half of households (55%) could afford unexpected expenses of EUR 600 in 2016. On the other hand, 16% of people aged 16 or more could not afford payable leisure activities.

Nine in ten Slovenians afforded a get-together with friends or relatives at least once a month and 69% of all Slovenian households afforded a one-week vacation for the entire household.

In 2016, 371,000 Slovenians were at risk of social exclusion, down from 385,000 in the year before.
