Derived from the Census question:

'From all sources of income identified, what will the total income be that you got yourself, before tax or anything was taken out of it, in the 12 months that will end on 31 March 2013?'

Household income

Household income is one of the most important indicators of socio-economic status. With other data sources, such as Individual Income, Income Sources, Educational Qualifications and Occupation, it helps to evaluate economic opportunities and the socio-economic status of Māori communities.

Points to note:

Households vary in size, so some have a greater number of dependents for the income generated.

A large number of retirees will produce a higher proportion of households with low income. This is not necessarily a measure of retirees' wealth, as they often have capital resources. Refer to the Age Structure section to investigate this element further.

To enable a comparison of Household Income levels of an area over time, Household Income quartiles have been calculated and presented in Household Income Quartiles.

Defining Māori households or iwi households is complex. Therefore the data in these household tables is the number of individuals with a certain household income, rather than the number of households. Household data excludes people temporarily absent from their usual residence on census night.
