INCOME UNIT COMPOSITION

The ABS has developed the concept of the 'income unit' as a statistical unit appropriate for certain types of income analysis, particularly when considering households receiving income support payments (through social security) and income tax. The standard variable 'Income unit composition' supports the identification of income units within households.

Terminology used in this standard is defined in the Glossary (see Explanatory Notes tab).
