Aorangi Forest

Sources of household income

In 2018, Wages, salary, commissions, bonuses etc was the largest source of income in Aorangi Forest.

Income sources data is a useful addition to Income data as an indicator of socio-economic status. With other data sources, such as Household Income statistics, Educational Qualifications and Occupation data, it helps to evaluate the economic opportunities and socio-economic status of Aorangi Forest and differentiate between market and non-market source of income. The sources of income that a household relies on are linked to a number of factors:

  • the number and age of people in the household;
  • the type of employment undertaken by the household members.
  • the presence of students in the household; and
  • the percentage of people unemployed or on other income support benefits.

Note: Government benefit recipient figures from the 2013 and 2006 Censuses are not directly comparable with 2018 figures. In explanation, welfare reform resulted in changes to benefit categories. Benefits were consolidated into three main groupings: Jobseeker support, sole parent support and supported living payment. The unemployment benefit was moved into jobseeker support, but so was the sickness benefit, domestic purposes/widows benefit for sole parents with children 14 years and over.

Q:

Derived from the Census question:

'Show all the ways you yourself got income in the 12 months ending today (excluding loans because they are not income)?'
