Ascot and Hamilton top Queensland's income list
People living in the inner-city areas of Ascot and Hamilton earn, on average, substantially higher incomes than Queenslanders in other regions, according to figures released today by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).

Ascot recorded the highest average total income in Queensland in 2007-08 ($84,766), followed closely by Hamilton ($84,759).

Pullenvale ($65,893), Kenmore Hills ($65,891) and Chapel Hill ($65,880) round out the top five, with average incomes well below those of the leaders.

Around 40% of regions in Queensland recorded average total incomes above the state average ($41,911). Of these, around 70% were located within the Brisbane metropolitan area.

Outside of Brisbane, highest average total incomes were recorded in Belyando ($62,100), Broadsound ($60,474) and Nebo ($58,934), and in the Central Highlands region, Duaringa ($58,579) and Peak Downs ($58,093).

These data include income from wages and salaries, own unincorporated business, investment, and superannuation and annuities, but do not include government pensions and allowances.

Further information is available in Estimates of Personal Income for Small Areas, 2003-04 to 2007-08 (cat. no. 6524.0.55.002).
