STATISTICAL RELEASE. Households increasingly own other financial assets alongside deposits




Background Information

The dataset of the assets and liabilities of Estonian households is based on the Household Finance and Consumption Survey (HFCS) of Estonian households. The HFCS is a survey run at the initiative of the European Central Bank using a harmonised methodology that can produce internationally comparable statistics for household assets and liabilities. The survey collects data from households on their main residence, other real estate, vehicles, business assets, deposits and other financial investments. It also covers the loans and other liabilities of households, and their income and consumption, and it has questions on their expectations and credit constraints.

The statistical release on the assets and liabilities of Estonian households describes the results of the 2021 Household Finance and Consumption Survey. The release is independent of economic policy releases and is presented separately from them.
