Description

Statistics on indebtedness describe the debts of private persons and household-dwelling units. The basic data for the statistics have been drawn from the Tax Administration�s database and combined with the data from total statistics on income distribution. The Tax Administration receives data on credits and interest by type of loan from the annual declarations of financial corporations and other credit providers. The total data on income distribution consists of register data covering the whole population. All of its data are collected from administrative registers. The register data are combined on the basis of the personal identity codes. The statistics on indebtedness are published only on the Internet. The released statistics describe the indebtedness of household-dwelling units and persons by gender, age, family type and area.
