Income


In settlements, income level is considerably lower than in towns. However, the size of this difference depends on the municipality. The difference in average gross income between settlements and towns is most significant in Kommuneqarfik Sermersooq. Here, the average income of a Nuuk resident is more than twice the average income of a settlement resident.

In 2017, men had an average gross income of 288,000 DKK, while women held an average gross income of 220,000 DKK. Hence, on a national level the average man had an income 31 per cent higher than the average woman. However, men are overrepresented in the typical economically active groups, and women are overrepresented in the oldest age groups. This may in part cause the difference in income. In Greenland, income correlates with education level. When the level of education increases, the level of income increases as well.
