Output

Standard output

The standard output classification matches the input classification. Output categories are also dependent on meeting survey requirements such as confidentiality rules. See 'Guidelines for adherence to the standard'.

Income bands collected from individuals may be grouped for output.

Grouped total personal income (2006 Census example)
The standard income band classification cannot be used for outputting data about small geographic areas (meshblocks, area units or user-defined combinations of these) from the 2006 census. Instead, grouped income categories must be used for these areas:

Grouped personal income
$5,000 or less
$5,001 - $10,000
$10,001 - $20,000
$20,001 - $30,000
$30,001 - $50,000
$50,001 or more
Not stated

Standard household and family output groupings
The standard outputs for family and household income bands are derived from the income bands of all the respondents in the family or household.

If derived income bands need to be grouped for output, due to survey requirements or confidentiality rules, then different groupings may be required to those used for individual groupings - since the distributions of these variables differ from the individual income band distribution. The following were used for the 2006 census:

Grouped household income
$20,000 or less
$20,001 - $30,000
$30,001 - $50,000
$50,001 - $70,000
$70,001 - $100,000
$100,001 or more
Not stated
Grouped family income
$20,000 or less
$20,001 - $30,000
$30,001 - $50,000
$50,001 - $70,000
$70,001 - $100,000
$100,001 or more
Not stated
Grouped parent income
$30,000 or less
$30,001 - $50,000
$50,001 - $70,000
$70,001 - $100,000
$100,001 or more
Not stated

The residual categories are defined in Glossary and references.

The full classification is available in Download of classification.
