In Slovenia, the share of single-person households, which has higher expenditure and thus a greater impact on the environment, is rapidly increasing. We are witnessing the rapid aging of the population. At the same time there is a deterioration in the part of the population, as more than half of households, for example, would not be able to cover unexpected expenditures. Nevertheless, people are relatively satisfied with their lives.


Based on monitoring data for the period 2006–2008, five Slovenian marine water bodies were classified as being in a poor chemical state. This state was determined by values that exceeded the environmental standard of the quality of tributyltin compounds, which have been monitored at the level of the European Union since 2007. Three marine water bodies have been determined to be in a good or very good ecological state.
