The number of socially vulnerable persons in April increased by more than 19,000 people over the previous month, reaching over 1.6 million total. This is in contrast to the decrease in vulnerable persons seen in the first three months of 2012.

Out of this number, only a quarter receive state allowances - an estimated 195,000 families.
