Denmark -Purchasing power lags behind income -September 22, 2015

The report Indkomster 2013 (Earnings 2013) from Statistics Denmark reveals that only Luxembourgers take home higher post-tax incomes than the Danes do. Nevertheless, once national price levels enter the picture, both Swedes and Austrians, who can get more for their money despite their lower incomes, outpace the purchasing power. According to other data, the average citizen earned 206,800 kroner (27,700 euro) after taxes in 2014, significantly higher than the EU-28 average of 115,400 kroner (15,500 euro). The report also signals significant differences in the earning power of immigrants.
