Abstract [en]

This essay examines borrowing habits in different social groups in Norrköping, Sweden, during the early 1870’s, using estate inventories. By looking at debts among individuals, debts in com-parison with personal fortune and what kinds of debts and loans were present, this study tries to answer what differences there were between different social groups at the time in regards to debt and borrowing. The study found that lower income groups tended to borrow less from formal loan institutions and by credit than higher income groups, both in terms of amount of people with loans and in terms of average debt in comparison with personal fortune. Age also mattered to how much debt a person had, especially in middle income groups.
