Average household size the Netherlands 2009-2019, by number of residents

This statistic displays the average household size in the Netherlands from 2009 to 2019, by the number of residents. It shows that the average household size in the Netherlands between 2009 and 2019 barely changed, from 2.23 people per household in 2009 to 2.15 people per household in 2019. A historical overview is provided here in this statistic, which shows the development of the average household size in the Netherlands since 1950. It shows that from the 1950s onwards, the average household size continuously decreased, from approximately 3.9 people in 1950 to roughly 2.2 people today. As a downward trend is visible in the last 67 years, a further decrease in the average household size can be expected too in the future. This is confirmed by this recent forecast, which shows a particular increase in the number of one-person households is likely to take place.
