This release provides new estimates of personal income - as received and reported by individuals for the 2010-11 tax year. The release also presents revised back-data from 2005-06 to 2009-10.

The publication summarises income that individuals receive from the following sources: Wages and salaries; Own unincorporated business; Investment; Superannuation and annuities; and Other income (excluding government pensions and allowances). Estimates of Total income from all sources (except government pensions and allowances) are also published.

Average annual growth rates for personal income are also provided for smaller regions.

Confidentialised personal income data are presented for the following geographies; Statistical Area Level 2 (SA2) regions, SA3, SA4, Greater Capital City Statistical Areas (GCCSA), State/Territory and Australia, and local government areas - reflecting the Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS) classification.

The estimates have been compiled using aggregated individual income tax data from the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). The ABS has subsequently transformed these into ASGS regions and added further confidentialisation.

This compilation forms part of the ABS' ongoing program to increase the publicly-available range of regional statistics, through the use of administrative data collected by other government agencies. The ABS wishes to acknowledge the invaluable support of the ATO in compiling these statistics.
