4月27日报道，韩国国土交通部25日发布的《2016年普通家庭居住现况调查》显示，按照韩国人目前的工资水平，中等收入家庭需在不花一分钱的情况下，积攒5年6个月以上，才能买得起房子。

April 27, the Ministry of Land and Transportation released a survey on the living conditions of ordinary families in 2016, which showed that according to the current wage level of Korean, middle-income families need to save more than 5 years and 6 months to buy a house without spending a penny.

据该报道，反映积攒多少年才能买得起房的家庭年收入与房价比率（PIR）为5.6（2016年标准），创下自2006年实施此项统计以来的最高水平。

According to the report, the annual income-to-house ratio (PIR) of households, which reflects how many years they have saved to afford housing, is 5.6 (2016 standard), the highest level since the statistics were implemented in 2006.

其中，月收入200万韩元（约合12200元人民币）以下的低收入阶层的PIR为9.8，中等收入阶层（月收入201-400万韩元，约合12200元-24400元人民币）为5.6，高收入阶层（月收入401万韩元以上，人民币24400元以上）为5。

Among them, the PIR of the low-income group with monthly income less than 2 million won (about 12,200 yuan) is 9.8, that of the middle-income group (201-4 million won, 12,200-24,400 yuan) is 5.6, and that of the high-income group (more than 4.01 million won, more than 24,400 yuan) is 5.

调查显示，有房者比重随收入水平出现较大差异。低收入阶层中有房者的比重从2012年的50.4%下降至去年的46.2%，中等收入阶层的有房者比重从51.8%上升至59.4%，高收入阶层的有房者比重则从59.4%上升至73.6%。

The survey shows that the proportion of people who own a house varies greatly with their income level. The proportion of low-income households dropped from 50.4% in 2012 to 46.2% last year. The proportion of middle-income households rose from 51.8% to 59.4%, while the proportion of high-income households rose from 59.4% to 73.6%.

另外，购买首套住房的所需时间平均为6.7年，较2012年时的8年、2014年时的6.9年有所缩短。受访者中认为住房贷款和房租负担过重的比重从2014年时的71.7%下降至66.5%。

In addition, the average time required to purchase the first housing is 6.7 years, which is shorter than 8 years in 2012 and 6.9 years in 2014. The proportion of respondents who believed that housing loans and rents were overburdened dropped from 71.7% in 2014 to 66.5%.

调查还显示，人均居住面积从2014年的33.5m²小幅缩小至去年的33.2m²，人均居住面积减小在实施此项统计后尚属首次。分析称，这主要是由于单人家庭增长，住房负担加重，不少家庭选择搬至中小户型的公寓。未达人均居住面积的家庭比重为5.4%。

The survey also shows that the per capita living area has decreased slightly from 33.5 m_in 2014 to 33.2 m_last year. This is the first time that the per capita living area has decreased since the implementation of this statistics. According to the analysis, this is mainly due to the growth of single family and the increase of housing burden. Many families choose to move to small and medium-sized apartments. The proportion of households less than per capita living space is 5.4%.
