Provides estimates of income received by households, classified by various characteristics of the households and their residents (eg income quintile, principal source of household income, family composition, tenure type, age, employment status). Improvements have been made to the measurements of income presented in the publication, in line with international statistical standards, to incorporate: non-cash benefits provided to employees, termination payments and lump sum workers compensation payments; and to improve the coverage of bonuses and irregular overtime payments and inter-household transfers. This publication also includes, for the first time, summary child care usage and cost information.
