Portuguese Household Finance and Consumption Survey: results for 2017 and comparison with the previous waves
This article analyses the main results of the 2017 Portuguese Household Finance and Consumption Survey and compares them with the results of the 2010 and 2013 waves. In 2017, the median value of net wealth (i.e., the difference between total assets and total debts) of households living in Portugal was 74.8 thousand euros. In 2017, the median net wealth was higher in real terms than in 2013, but remained lower than in 2010. The analysis in this article suggests that in the period between 2010 and 2017 there were no major changes in the degree of inequality of net wealth in Portugal. However, by household groups, some differentiation in net wealth changes has taken place in this period.
