Wealth distribution of households; National Accounts


This table describes the wealth 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 and 2017 are provisional.

Changes as of June 24th 2019:

This is a redesign of the table of July 9th 2018. The figures of 2015 and 2016 are revised, because new microdata is used that was not available in July 2018. Furthermore some national accounts figures are changed due to a revision (for example balances of households), or became available (for example land underlying dwellings). Also the household grouping by net worth class is added. The table shows not only the revised figures of 2015 and 2016, but also results of 2017.

Statistics Netherlands has carried out a revision of the national accounts recently. New statistical sources and estimation methods have been used during the revision. This table provides the data after revision. It replaces table Wealth distribution of households; NA, 2005-2014. For further information see section 3.

When will new figures be published?
New figures will be released in June 2020.
