GfK Purchasing Power 2011 - GfK GeoMarketing

The 2011 GfK purchasing power for Germany will total €1,610.2 billion, which is 2.6% more than in 2010. The average German can therefore expect to have €19,864 of purchasing power available for expenditures related to consumption, rent and costs of living, among other things.

The city state of Hamburg has climbed two places in the federal state rankings this year, moving into the number two spot behind Bavaria and pushing both Hesse and Baden-Württemberg down a place. Despite a growth of 4%, the city state of Berlin remains in eleventh place in the federal state rankings. Both Berlin and Brandenburg lie around 10% below the national average, but are still considerably ahead of Thuringia, Saxony, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and Saxony-Anhalt, all of which fall approximately 16% below the federal average.

About the study
GfK defines purchasing power as the sum of the population’s net income with reference to place of residence. The calculation of purchasing power takes into account net income from self-employment and employment as well as capital income and national benefits such as unemployment benefit, child benefit and pensions. However, living costs, insurance, rent and additional expenses such as gas and electricity, clothing and savings are not deducted from these disposable income figures. Calculations are based on statistics for wages, income taxes and national benefits as well as forecasts by economic institutes. GfK has been calculating purchasing power since 1937.

GfK GeoMarketing annually publishes the complete forecast for the new year on January 1. As of this date, GfK purchasing power data is available for all of Germany’s counties, urban and rural districts, postcodes and 2.5 million street segments.
