census-message-logo

This topic has been updated with 2016 Census data for all areas. What's this?

In the City of Onkaparinga, 13% of households earned an income of $2,500 or more per week in 2016.

Households form the common 'economic unit' in our society. The City of Onkaparinga's Household Income is one of the most important indicators of socio-economic status. With other data sources, such as Qualifications and Occupation, it helps to reveal the economic opportunities and socio-economic status of the City of Onkaparinga. 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:

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