    HOUSEHOLD ASSETS, LIABILITIES AND FINANCIAL STRESS

    In 2002, more than two-thirds (70%) of all households were buying or purchasing their home, and over half (56%) reported having no consumer debt. This article explores the relationship between household assets and liabilities, household income and selected financial stress indicators.


    HOUSEHOLD INCOME

    Between 1994-95 and 2000-01, real equivalised disposable household income for all people increased by 12% on average. This article discusses the distribution of this increase, and of equivalised disposable household income more generally, across different life cycle stages, and considers factors such as principal source of household income and home ownership.


    INCOMES OF ABORIGINAL AND TORRES STRAIT ISLANDER AUSTRALIANS

    In 2001, the average equivalised gross household income for Indigenous persons was 62% of that for non-Indigenous persons. This article examines the level, and distribution, of equivalised household income of Indigenous persons across Remoteness Areas. It uses individual incomes to examine differences between Indigenous and non-Indigenous persons by industry and occupation.
