Household Incomes in New Zealand: Trends in Indicators of Inequality and Hardship 1982 to 2011
The Household Incomes Report provides information on the material wellbeing of New Zealanders as indicated by their household incomes from all sources from 1982 to 2011.
Household Incomes 1982-2011
The report uses data from Statistics New Zealand’s 2010–2011 Household Economic Survey (HES) to update the previous report in the series which had information to 2010.
The interviews for the 2010–2011 survey were carried out in the year to 30 June 2011, and asked about incomes in the previous twelve months.
The 2010–2011 survey is the first HES to fully capture the impact on incomes of the global financial crisis and related economic slowdown.
In addition to the Full Report and the Summary, there is also a Short Summary which gives a quick overview.
The next report is planned for mid 2013 using data from the 2011–2012 HES.
