Luxembourg had among the highest home ownership for nationals within the EU in 2016, new figures suggest.
A Eurostat report, released on 15 March, found that 86.1% of Luxembourg nationals aged 20 to 64 owned their own homes, behind Croatia and Lithuania in joint first (89.9%), Slovakia (89.5%) and Hungary (86.3%).
Ownership was highest among the 55-64-year-old group where nine out of ten nationals owned their own homes.
Among foreign national home ownership, Luxembourg was well above the EU average (30.1%) with 56.6% of foreign nationals owning their own homes. The rate varied little for the 55-64-year-olds group, where 57.5% owned their own homes.

The report found that Luxembourg had the highest rate of non-Europeans owning property with six out of ten. The author warns, however, that this last figure is of low reliability.
