The average wealth of the Dutch household has been increasing since 2014, according to figures from Statistics Netherlands. Compared to 2018, the average capital has increased by 12 thousand euros. In 2019 a record value was even reached, but due to inflation, the average Dutch person has no more to spend than in the previous record year 2008. The biggest effects come from rising house prices, according to Statistics Netherlands. The influence of the corona crisis on household wealth is not yet known.
