Bus/Financial - Economics
German term or phrase: Masseneinkommen
This comes from the sentence: in Ostdeutschland sehen wir exemplarisch, dass durch diese Entwicklung die Masseneinkommen gedrückt werden - mass income doesn't make sense to me

English translation:combined private household income
Explanation:
I studied economics a long time ago so all I can remember is terms such as GDP are strictly defined. It seems to be a term used by German statisticians which does not readily match the terms used internationally. It is translated by some as Mass Income, but this seems unsatisfatory. I suggest 'Combined private household income' based on the definition referenced below.
