City Statistics: Income

The average taxable income of natural persons describes the average material situation of the population. Sufficient income enables people to cover their basic needs such as food, housing and healthcare. It has an influence on quality of life in that it can provide some room for manoeuvre to cover material needs. Sufficient income enables people to manage their personal resources by continuing their education, to provide childcare or to access culture and leisure activities, for example.
