 The National Institute of Statistics of Albania (NISA) measured poverty in the country by surveying 7,582 households. According to a recent NISA study, 23 percent of the country's population, or 671,000 Albanians, live below the poverty line.

- Unable to afford a meal with meat or chicken once every two days

- Unable to have a washing machine

- The financial inability to afford a cell phone

- The inability to cope with an unforeseen financial expense of over 10,000 ALL
