About the study
Purchasing power is a measure of per-capita disposable income (including any received state benefits) after the deduction of taxes and charitable contributions. The study indicates per-person, per-year purchasing power levels in euros and as an index value. GfK purchasing power figures reflect the nominal disposable income, meaning that the values have not been adjusted for inflation. The study draws on statistics on income and tax lev-els, government benefits and forecasts by economic institutes.
GfK purchasing power is used by the population for consumer purchases as well as recurring monthly expenses such as rent, energy costs, contribu-tions to private retirement funds and insurance policies as well as other expenses such as traveling and transportation costs.
The GfK Purchasing Power Europe study is calculated annually for 42 Eu-ropean countries, providing comprehensive coverage down to the level of municipalities and postcodes. The 2013/2014 study also includes data on inhabitants and households and is available immediately via GfK’s geomar-keting solution area. GfK also offers seamlessly fitting digital maps for all of Europe.
Internationally active companies need accurate predictions of the amount of money available to consumers in their markets. GfK Purchasing Power Europe provides this information and supports expansion planning, branch network optimization and controlling.
