After 2013 to 2014, the income level still improved slightly in 2017 for households living in owner-occupied dwellings. The growth in the income level halted for households living in rented dwellings. As in previous years, the income level after housing costs was nearly one-half of the income level of households living in owner-occupied dwellings. These data derive from Statistics Finlands income distribution statistics .

Description: The income distribution statistics describe the distribution of the annual income of households and income differentials between different population groups. The statistics describe the amount of disposable income and its formation from different sources when taking taxation and income transfers into consideration. Income and its distribution are also examined by groups according to level of income, socio-economic status, stage in life cycle and area of residence. The statistics also describe the earned and entrepreneurial incomes of household members.
