Household Income as Stated (HINASD)

This variable is new for 2006. It allows household income to be calculated for households where only partial income details have been stated.

Household Income as Stated is the sum of the Individual Incomes (INCP) of each resident present in the household on Census Night. Households where any resident aged 15 years and over is temporarily absent, or does not state their income, are included in the calculation.

The categories of Household Income as Stated (HINASD) include 'All incomes not stated'. This is used when no member of the household (aged 15 years and over) has stated their income.

In most cases, the income of visitors to a household is excluded from HINASD. The exception to this is households that comprise only visitors. HINASD is calculated for these households in order to collect data on household income in tourist areas.
