Households are identified by main source of income, living situation, household composition, age classes of the head of the household, income class by 20% groups, and net worth class by 20% groups.

Data available from: 2015.

Status of the figures:
Data of 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 are provisional.

Changes as of June 24th 2020:
The figures of 2015 and 2016 are revised, because national accounts figures are changed due to a revision (for example balances of households). For 2017 also microdata are added that were not available in June 2019. The table shows not only the revised figures of 2015-2017, but also results of 2018.
