With other data sources, such as Educational Qualifications and Occupation, it helps to reveal the economic opportunities and socio-economic status of Woodridge. 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.
