The Bank of Italy's Analysis of Household Finances. Fifty Years of The Survey on Household Income and Wealth and the Financial AccountsRome, 3-4 dicembre 2015

To mark the 50th anniversary of the Survey on Household Income and Wealth, the Bank of Italy has organized a conference on the economic behaviour of households.

The main topics will cover savings and consumption, wealth and pensions, debts and the financial vulnerability of households.

On the occasion of the conference, the pages of the Bank of Italy’s website relating to the Survey have been completely revamped and enriched. The new material, which is available to the public for the first time, includes:

• Statistical tables containing the main results of the surveys from 1977 to 2014, available as Excel files
• The Italian data of the European survey HFCS (including the computation of gross income)
• Some historical documentation (statistical tables relating to the surveys conducted from 1965 to 1975 and other material).
