Many households with high income

In 2006, 8 per cent of Norwegian households had a total household income of NOK 1 million or more. The majority of these households are couples with older children.

Development of after tax income for some types of households. Constant prices. 1990-2006. 1990=100

Almost one third of couples with adult children had a household income of NOK 1 million before assessed taxes. Among couples where the youngest child is aged between 6 and 17, more than one in five households had this income level in 2006. Very few couples with children had an income lower than NOK 400 000.

Among single parents with small children, eight out of ten had a total household income of less than NOK 400 000. Among single parents where the youngest child is between 6 and 17 years old, six out of ten had such a low income.

Underlying data

The household income statistics are based on all private households in Norway at the end of the fiscal year. Since 2004, the household income statistics have been based solely on register data. This includes all persons in private households living in Norway. This method is described in more detail in About the statistics.
