ABOUT THIS RELEASE
This Information Paper presents small area experimental estimates of the sources of personal income of the population for each state and territory of Australia by various levels of the Australian Standard Geographical Classification including Local Government Areas. Some broad after tax income measures are also included.
The estimates, for the years 1995-96 to 2000-01, have been compiled using a combination of individual income tax data from the Australian Taxation Office and income support customer data from the Commonwealth Department of Family and Community Services. The compilation of these data are part of the ABS' program to increase the availability of regional statistics, particularly through the use of administrative data collected by other government agencies.
