These products provide estimates of income received by households, classified by various characteristics of the households and their residents (eg income amounts, main source of household income, family composition, tenure type, age, employment status). Also available are housing costs, wealth, loans, child care and social transfers in kind. A detailed list of data items is available on the Downloads tab.

The microdata enables users to tabulate, manipulate and analyse data. Steps to confidentialise the dataset are taken to ensure the integrity of data and maintain confidentiality of respondents. This includes removing any information that might uniquely identify an individual, reducing the level of detail for some items and collapsing some categories.

SIH files are arranged in a hierarchy, made up of the following 4 levels:

1. Household
2. Income Unit
3. Person
4. Loans
