The household saving rate in the euro area was at 24.6% in the second quarter of 2020, when Member States continued to implement the COVID-19 containment measures, compared with 16.6% in the first quarter of 2020. Both the value and the quarter-over-quarter increase (+8.0 percentage points) were the highest

observed since the beginning of the time series in 1999.

At the same time, the household investment rate in the euro area was 7.9% in the second quarter of 2020, down from 8.9% in the previous quarter. This marked both the lowest value and the largest decrease (-1.0 percentage points) since the beginning of the series in 1999. These data come from a first release of seasonally adjusted quarterly European sector accounts from Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union and the European Central Bank (ECB).

Household saving rate and its components.    The increase of households’ saving rate by 8.0 percentage points is explained by a sharp decrease of their consumption (-12.6%), at a much higher rate than the decrease of households’ gross disposable income (-3.3%).

Household investment rate and its components.    The quarterly decline of 1 percentage point in household’s investment rate is explained by a 13.4% decline in gross fixed capital formation, while the decrease of their gross disposable income was much more modest (-3.3%).
