Preface

These Guidelines for Micro Statistics on Household Wealth presents, for the first time, an internationally agreed set of guidelines for producing micro statistics on household wealth. They fill an important gap in the existing international guidance on measuring the various dimensions of people’s economic well-being. They address the common conceptual, definitional and practical problems that countries face in producing such statistics, and are meant to improve the comparability of the currently available country data. They are also needed to facilitate the integration of micro statistics on household wealth with those relating to the other dimensions of economic well-being, i.e. income and consumption.
