Abstract: Real income on Bornholm is described by comparing the region with the

capital area and the country. Region specific prices are constructed for housing

expenditure and for services. Weights for these parts of household budgets and the

residual are found from panel surveys of household consumption. Relative prices of

the consumption bundle for each year in the period 1987 to 1996 are found for both

those who own there dwelling and those who rent it. Median incomes for

entrepreneurs, employees and workers are constructed. Combining data on incomes

and on relative prices gives estimates of real incomes. The result is that households of

employed persons are relatively rich on Bornholm during the period.
