Market Value for Households Real Estate

This is the first publication of the households’ assets in real estate on individual level. The purpose is to follow the development of the households’ real estate. Sector delimitation of units in the sector of households is defined in European system of national accounts (ESA2010). From this it appears that sole proprietorships are a part of the households’ sector. Registers on individual level can be used for distribution analyses, e.g. in relation to income, financial liabilities or socioeconomic status.
