That is even more than at the start of the credit crisis. During the economic recession that followed, the share of social assistance recipients increased to more than 30 people in a thousand in 2017.
Since then, the number of welfare recipients has decreased, but that has now changed.
The picture varies greatly from one municipality to another. In Amsterdam, Arnhem, Enschede, The Hague, Groningen, Heerlen, Leeuwarden and Rotterdam most people needed help, at least 50 welfare recipients per municipality. Rotterdam has even been a leader for years.
Apart from in and around the major cities, the social assistance density was highest in the north of the Netherlands in 2020.
