Swedish citizens received Skr 54 000 in welfare subsidies

Thursday, 10 November 2011
In the article How do the public welfare services affect the household economy? Statistic Sweden,  SCB analyses how the income distribution is affected when public services provided to households, so-called welfare services, are included in income.


From an international perspective Sweden's public sector consumption is very high. According to SCB, “When we add the welfare services that households consume, we get a complementary picture of the traditional income distribution, which is usually described as disposable income.”

As such they obtain a more relevant measure to study the economic welfare of households which they find that it is mainly individuals over 65 and single parents who consume more welfare services.
On average, each Swedish citizen received Skr 54 000 in welfare subsidies in 2009.
