The second edition of the Roy Morgan Wealth Report shows that net wealth per capita in Australia has increased by 65.1% since 2007, with gains across all balance levels. The average per capita increase for the lowest value 50% (Quintiles 1 to 5) of the population was 55.0%, while the average increase for the highest value 50% (Quintiles 6 to 10) was 65.5%. The report also shows that the wealthiest 10% of Australians (with an average net wealth of over $2 million, up by $811,000 from 2007), hold 47.9% of net wealth. The poorest 50% of Australians (with an average of $31,000, up by $11,000), who despite gains, have seen their total share of net wealth fall from 3.9% to 3.7%. The report is based on over half a million in depth face-to-face interviews conducted in people’s homes over the period from 2007 to 2019 across Australia.
