After the announcement of the approval of the minimum vital income, there is much expectation with the income that will help many families in the State at risk of extreme poverty. This, which represents 426 euros per month, is especially aimed at the most vulnerable households headed by people between 23 and 65 years old and who have a lack of sufficient income to survive.
In this sense, a single person household is considered to be at risk of poverty when its income is below € 8.871 per year. However, when the annual income does not reach € 5.914, this person is considered to be at risk of severe poverty. The minimum vital income will, however, be directed to the most extreme cases with very high poverty (they do not reach € 4.435 per year) or with extreme poverty (income below 2.957 per year).
The economic borders of Dénia

The streets and dianenses neighborhoods where the lowest incomes are concentrated are the Paseo Saladar and the neighborhood West-Camps.
