City of Burnside

Recent arrivals - Household income

In 2011, 20.7% of recent arrivals in the City of Burnside are in households earning $2,500 or more per week.

Households form the common 'economic unit' in our society. The City of Burnside'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 the recent arrivals in the City of Burnside.

Income for recent arrivals may be lower or higher than the wider population. Generally, areas with many recent migrants, particularly students and refugees, may have lower incomes. On the other hand, some areas attract more recent skilled migrants and business sponsored migration which will tend to have higher incomes among their recent arrivals.

Derived from the Census question:

'What is the total of all wages/salaries, government benefits, pensions, allowances and other income the person usually receives?'

People born overseas and arriving in Australia between 2006 and 9 Aug 2011, counted in private dwellings
