Income distribution of households; National Accounts


This table describes the income distribution of the sector households in the national accounts over different household groups. 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.

When will new figures be published?
New figures will be released in June 2021.
