INCOME AND EARNINGS
CURRENT WEEKLY GROSS PERSONAL INCOME FROM ALL SOURCES
This data item provides the total gross income someone receives in a week. Income is provided in $100 ranges up to $2000 per week.
Income includes regular and recurring cash receipts, such as moneys received from wages and salaries, government pensions and allowances, and other regular receipts such as superannuation, workers’ compensation, child support, scholarships, profit or loss from own unincorporated business or partnership and property income. Total gross income is the sum of the income from all these sources before income tax or the Medicare levy are deducted.
This item is not collected in the monthly Labour Force Survey (LFS) and is derived from the supplementary survey Multipurpose Household Survey, Australia (MPHS, cat. no. 4100.0), which is collected every month from one selected person per household in the out-going group of the LFS (the one-eighth of the LFS sample that has been in the survey for the full 8 months). Information obtained in the MPHS is always collected via a personal interview, and so does not relate to the data item Respondent detail [RESPTYPC], which only relates to the data items collected in the LFS and other supplementary surveys.
