How to use the calculator
In the first field, enter your monthly net household income – that is, the total income available to your household minus income tax and social security contributions. Your salary would also include your partner’s salary – if you live together – or your child’s training salary.
You must then state how many people aged 14 and under live in your household.
You will now see the so-called needs-weighted net income, which is calculated (see below). On the left and right and below the graph, you can then select which groups you would like to compare your income with. You will now see what percentage of the respective groups you have selected are poorer or richer. If you move your mouse over the graphs, you will also see what proportion of the group is in the total population or what the median income of the group is. The median income is the income that divides the group exactly in half: one half has a higher income, the other a lower one.
