The SIH provides estimates of the distribution of income and wealth across the population, by various characteristics of households (e.g. income and wealth quintiles, main source of income, wealth, household type, tenure and employment status).
To demonstrate the potential of the SIH, this publication includes three case studies that explore how income and wealth vary for three types of households. These case studies give an overview of the economic wellbeing of couple families with dependent children, one parent families with dependent children and older households.
This issue is the first fully electronic release of SIH data, with separate Excel data cubes available from the ‘Downloads’ tab of this publication, by subpopulations including a range of household characteristics (such as income quintiles), and by state and territory.
An additional data cube on Imputed Rent will be released as part of this publication in late 2015.
ABOUT THE SURVEY OF INCOME AND HOUSING
The SIH was conducted annually from 1994–95 to 1997–98, and then in 1999–2000, 2000–01 and 2002–03. Commencing in 2003–04 the SIH has been conducted every two years, and has been integrated with the Household Expenditure Survey (HES) every six years. In 2003–04 and 2009–10 the SIH was integrated with the HES, as it will be again in 2015–16. In 2005–06, 2007–08, 2011–12, and 2013–14, the SIH was run as a stand-alone survey.
The 2013–14 SIH collected information from a sample of 14,162 households over the period July 2013 to June 2014. The key topics of the SIH are income, wealth and housing characteristics.
