Total Household Income (weekly)

Total Household Income (weekly) (HIND)

This variable is created by summing the personal incomes reported by all household members aged 15 years and over. As personal income is collected in ranges, median values are assigned to each range using data from the Survey of Income and Housing.

Households where all or at least one member aged 15 years and over did not state an income are set to 'All incomes not stated' and 'Partial income stated' respectively. Households where at least one member aged 15 and over was temporarily absent on Census Night are also set to 'Partial income stated'.

The total household non-response rate for this variable in the 2011 Census was 3.0%. A further 7.9% of households recorded a partial response for Total Household Income (weekly) (HIND). More information on non-response rates is available from the 2011 Census non-response quality statement.

For further information see the data quality statements for Household Composition (HHCD) and Total Personal Income (weekly) (INCP).

More information on HIND is available in the 2011 Census Dictionary (cat. no. 2901.0).
