Contents and Explanatory Information
The attached spreadsheets include various cross-tabulations of the characteristics of wage and salary earners such as age, sex, occupation, wage and salary income and total income. Most of the data in these tables are presented for each Statistical Local Area (SLA) in Australia.
These data have been compiled from the Australian Taxation Office's (ATO) Individual Income Tax Return Database and are part of the Australian Bureau of Statistics' (ABS) program to increase the range of regional statistics available, particularly through the use of administrative information from other government agencies. The ABS wishes to acknowledge the support the Australian Taxation Office has provided in compiling these statistics.
All individual income tax statistics provided to the ABS by the ATO have been in aggregated form only, at the SLA level. No information about individual taxpayers has been released to the ABS.
Details of the methodology and the definitions used to compile the statistics presented in these tables are available in the EXPLANATORY NOTES and GLOSSARY
(a) The attached spreadsheet files contain data for all SLAs in Australia (Note: Tables 9 and 14 are by SSD only). Users wishing to obtain a table(s) for a particular State or Territory should contact their local ABS office.
(b) Tables for 1995-96, 1996-97 and 1997-98 are also available for SLA boundaries based on ASGC98. Users wishing to obtain copies of these should contact their local ABS office.
(c) Revisions have been made to Table 1 for the years 1995-96 to 1998-99. See paragraph 13 of the EXPLANATORY NOTES
