Description topics

Housing costs
Total housing costs
The average total (net) amount spent on housing such as rent or mortgage, including additional housing costs such as property tax, premiums paid for home insurance, sewerage charges, gas, water and electricity and maintenance.
Net rent or mortgage
For tenants this is the rent minus the rent subsidy (if applicable). For owners these are the mortgage, but also the property tax, premiums paid for home insurance and maintenance costs.
Additional housing costs
Costs that are applicable to every household, tenants as well as owners. These are the taxes paid to the municipalities and public bodies and the costs for gas, water and electricity.
Housing cost ratio
The average percentage of disposable household income spent on housing.
Skewed rent
Rent disproportionate to the household income.



Non-skewed rent
Non-skewed rent: the rent of the home is proportionate to the household income.
Skewed towards cheap rent
Households that are eligible for housing benefit and have a before tax rent higher than a specified level. Their level of rent is below that expected for a household with this income. From 2017, the income-related rental policy has been adjusted. The new rules have been applied to all WoON investigations.
Skewed towards expensive rent
Households with an income above a specified income level and a before tax rent under the liberalisation level. Their level of rent is above that expected for a household with this income. The delineation of the group towards expensive skewed rent is based on the rules that was valid on January 1, 2021.
