It is well known that both income and wealth are important determinants of households’ economic well-being. Inequality in economic well-being of households as measured by income or earnings is very well documented, and differences in income between women and men have received wide attention in the literature. Households’ well-being as measured by wealth, on the other hand, has not received as much attention and gender differences in this respect even less. In order to begin to fill this gap, the goal of this report is, therefore, to document the living standards of households from the point of... view of wealth accumulation and to identify the extent of these differences between women and men. To this end, we use a new survey -- the ECB Household Finance and Consumption Survey (HFCS) conducted in the Euro zone countries during 2010/2011. These results are supplemented with those received from the Polish National Bank (based on a pilot dataset that, at the time of writing this report was not available publicly). In total, the results are based on eleven country reports, which can be found, along with their overviews, in volume 2 of this report.
