Households form the common 'economic unit' in our society. Aorangi Forest's Household Income is one of the most important indicators of socio-economic status. With other data sources, such as Educational Qualifications and Occupation, it helps to reveal the economic opportunities and socio-economic status of Aorangi Forest. It is important to note that income data is not necessarily a measure of wealth. For example, if an area has a large number of retirees this will produce a higher proportion of households with low income but the retirees may have large capital wealth. For this reason, household income should be viewed in conjunction with Age and Household Composition.

The incomes presented on this page are for the latest Census year only. For comparison of incomes over time, go to Household Income Quartiles.

Derived from the Census question:

'From all sources of income identified, what will the total income be:

  • that you got yourself
  • before tax or anything was taken out of it
  • in the 12 months that will end on 31 March 2018'
