REGIONAL WAGE AND SALARY EARNER STATISTICS

Regional Wage and Salary Earner Statistics, Australia - Data Cubes, 2005-06 (cat. no. 5673.0.55.003) was released on 16 April 2009 and presents selected data on estimates of personal income for people whose main (or principal) source of income was Wages and salaries. The publication includes a Main Features section which explores growth in average Wage and salary income from 2001-02 to 2005-06 and provides commentary for each state and territory at the Statistical Local Area (SLA) level.

Although the Australian Capital Territory had the highest average income from Wages and salaries in each year from 2001-02 to 2005-06, Western Australia recorded the highest average annual growth rate (5.3%) over this five year period. The average annual income from Wages and salaries in Australia in 2005-06 was $42,250 with an annual average growth rate of 4.2% between 2001-02 and 2005-06.

The ten SLAs with the highest average Wage and salary income in 2005-06 were all located within their respective capital city Statistical Divisions. A high proportion of Wage and salary earners in these SLAs were in Manager and Administrator or Professional occupations.
