The statistical office came up with final data on wages and income in 2016.

Incomes vary between various ages. Among men, the median income is highest for those aged 42 to 51, where it exceeds SEK 390 000. Men aged 45 have the highest median income, SEK 402 000. Among women, the median income is highest for those aged 43 to 52, where it exceeds SEK 325 000. Women aged 49 have the highest median income, SEK 332 000. Although the economic standard of households has developed favourably, the percentage of people at risk of poverty has also increased in the same time period, from 10 percent in 2005 to 14 percent in 2016.
