The household balance sheet in Australia
Australian household wealth has increased in recent years, despite higher debt levels. In other words, the value of household assets has risen substantially more than household debt. The higher debt levels partly reflect the benefits of low inflation in contributing to improved housing affordability and access to finance. Household debt increases do not appear to have resulted in enhanced financial difficulties at an aggregate level.
