    Household Income-Equivalised (weekly)
    Equivalised household income is total household income adjusted by the application of an equivalence scale to facilitate comparison of income levels between households of differing size and composition.

    Equivalised household income can be viewed as an indicator of the economic resources available to a standardised household. For a lone person household it is equal to household income. For a household comprising more than one person, it is an indicator of the household income that would be needed by a lone person household to enjoy the same level of economic wellbeing.
    This recode is based on Individual Income (Weekly) (INCP) ranges.
    Applicable to: Occupied private dwellings
