The wealth of the median Dutch household increased significantly in 2017, rising by 6 thousand euros to 28,300 euros. This is mainly due to substantial price increases on the housing market, Statistics Netherlands reports. If homeownership is taken out of account, the median wealth increased only slightly compared to 2016 to 14,100 euros.
Statistics Netherlands looked at all the assets and debts of Dutch households. Savings and investment mortgages are not included in these figures as the stats office was not given access to that data. Pensions are also not included.
