So where do people in Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Georgia get the money that they need to live?
For most households, the primary source of income comes from a paid salary (43% in Armenia, 44% in Azerbaijan, 32% in Georgia).
Another primary source of income for many families is a pension or other government benefit (23% in Armenia, 28% in Azerbaijan, and 30% in Georgia.)
Agricultural sales is another primary source (12% in Armenia, 12% in Azerbaijan, and 15% in Georgia).
But perhaps more interesting looking at total sources of money. Nearly 20% of Armenian families use money from relatives abroad to live on (11% of families use it as the PRIMARY source of income).
In all three countries, relatives help our other relatives that live in the same place (maybe a capital city relative helps village relatives?) (11% in Armenia, 8% in Azerbaijan, and 12% in Georgia).
But what is really interesting is that half of all families depend on some form of government assistance for money, although only a quarter or so say that it is their primary income.
In all three countries, salary and pension are the primary ways that people get money.
