This table includes additional information to the above visualized indicators, i.e. a short definition of this indicator and a description of the politically determined target values as well as explaining the political intention behind selecting this indicator.
The indicator shows the share of people living in households where more than 40 % of disposable household income is spent on housing. Housing costs comprise rent and ancillary charges, energy costs and water bills as well as, in the case of home ownership, investments to maintain the value of a property and interest payments on associated loans.
|Target and intention||
High housing costs place restrictions on households with regard to their other consumption choices. Housing expenses amounting to more than 40 % of disposable household income are considered to be excessive. The share of people who live in households where more than 40 % of disposable household income is spent on housing is therefore to be reduced to 13 % by 2030.
The data published in the indicator report 2022 is as of 31 October 2022. The data shown on this platform is updated regularly, so that more current data may be available online than published in the indicator report 2022.
