The 2017–18 cycle of the Survey of Income and Housing (SIH) collected information about income, wealth and housing from residents in private dwellings in Australia (excluding very remote areas).
The SIH provides:
- Estimates of the distribution of income and wealth across the population.
- Detailed information about housing and tenure.
Various other characteristics of households and residents (e.g. employment, industry and occupation, family makeup, disability status, education and childcare use) give these key indicators a rich context to help understand the living standards and economic wellbeing of Australians.
