    compared with vs compared to





    CBS report paints grim picture as one third of Israel's population at risk of poverty compared with 16% in EU countries

    About 31% of the Israeli population was at risk of poverty in 2010 compared to an average of 27% 12 years ago, and 16% in the European Union, the Central Bureau of Statistics reported Wednesday.


    The data, which were released ahead of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, showed that 40% of Israeli children are at risk of poverty compared to 20% in the EU.

    Source: 31% of Israelis at risk of poverty - Israel News, Ynetnews



    Will any of you know how to simplify the differences between compare to and compare with? I just need a hint.
