Individual income

Individual income statistics are an indicator of socio-economic status. With other data sources, such as Income Sources, Educational Qualifications and Occupation, they help to evaluate the economic opportunities and socio-economic status of a community. The amount of income an individual receives is linked to a number of factors including:

  • employment status
  • age
  • qualifications
  • type of employment.

To enable a comparison of individual income levels over time, individual income quartiles have been calculated and presented in the Individual Income Quartiles section.

The data presented is for the population aged over 15.
