Abstract: This report presents results from the second wave of the Eurosystem Household Finance and Consumption Survey (HFCS) for Austria. The focus of the report is on the wealth components of household balance sheets, the risk-bearing capacity of indebted households and changes in the main wealth components between the 2010 and 2014 waves. The composition of household balance sheets and the distribution of net wealth are found to have been stable over time. The risk-bearing capacity of households is high.
