List of OECD countries by wealth per adult, 2013[edit]

The table below lists the 34 OECD countries' wealth per adult in USD.[1] The net average wealth is calculated by subtracting the debt from the mean wealth. There's a list based on means, but because wealth is distributed very unequally, the median may represent average wealth more accurately.

List of OECD countries by financial wealth per adult, 2011[edit]

The table below lists the 34 OECD countries' financial net wealth per adult in PPPs.[2] The net average wealth is calculated by subtracting the debt from the mean wealth. Household financial wealth is the total value of a household’s financial worth, or the sum of their overall financial assets minus liabilities. Financial wealth takes into account: savings, monetary gold, currency and deposits, stocks, securities and loans. Unlike nonfinancial assets, financial assets are liquid and can much more easily support consumption, as they are not tied to the value of one's home (part of nonfinancial assets). Note however, that financial assets include pension and life insurance reserves, which in many cases cannot be withdrawn at one's discretion, but rather are annuitized.
