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?'
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
- 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.
