Sources of personal income across Australia

Differences in the value and sources of income in regions can indicate differences in opportunities or population characteristics, especially when compared over time for an individual region or between regions. This article looks at the experience of four local government areas selected for their different changes in income patterns and population between 1996-97 and 2000-01.

Female/male earnings

For a range of reasons, women tend to earn less from employment than men. This article examines whether the Australian gender wage gap (measured by the average hourly ordinary-time earnings among full-time adult non-managerial employees) has been narrowing or widening over recent decades. Some of the factors that contribute to differences between OECD countries are identified, and the influence of some of these factors on the Australian gender wage gap is explored.
