1553 Resolved Household asset


May I ask whether there is any document or report showing how the household asset in Understanding Society is questioned, calculated, and analysed? For example, how do you measure the current asset and real estate? And how do you measure the total household asset and compare it throughout different waves?

Any guidance on household asset calculation might help.

Thank you!

Respondents are asked questions about assets and wealth and you can find that by looking through the household questionnaire. The questionnaires for each wave can be found here:

Dear staff,

Do you have any information on when the next time data on assets and debt will be collected (the "wealthassetsanddebt" section)?

I would be grateful if you could provide any information on the timing of future collection of these variables.
