This release contains estimates of the sources and amount of personal income people received for the year 2009-10, for geographies based on the Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS) - SA2, SA3, SA4, State/Territory and Australia, and local government areas.
Data are provided on the number of individuals and the amount of income received from Wage and salary, Own unincorporated business, Investment, Superannuation and annuities, and Other income (excluding government pensions and allowances).
