Households over-indebtedness in the economic literature
Over-indebtedness is a multi-faced phenomenon with social, economic, legal and political aspects. In our study we present an analysis of the literature on over-indebtedness. In particular, we look at all surveys which refer to over-indebtedness or financial difficulties of households with the aim to develop our knowledge about the nature and causes of over-indebtedness and to provide an answer to the research question: “who is likely to be over-indebted and what are the main variables that explain this risk”. Most of these studies are related to EU countries and have been published in the last decade.
