QuickStats About Incomes looks at the income of adults (aged 15 years and over) who usually live in New Zealand, and the income of families. Information in this QuickStats is based on New Zealand's 2006 Census of Population and Dwellings, held on 7 March 2006. Some comparisons over time are also included.
QuickStats About Incomes focuses on the amount and sources of personal and family income, as well as a range of related factors. Factors such as where people live, their qualifications, whether they work (and if they do, whether they work part or full time), their sex, age, ethnicity, and occupation are all associated with the income people and families receive. All the factors must be considered when looking at information about income.
