Income

This indicator shows New Zealand's median real equivalised household disposable income before housing costs.

Equivalised disposable income is what is left of a household’s total income, after tax, that is available for spending or saving.

The term ‘equivalised’ means household incomes have been adjusted to account for different household sizes and compositions. For example, large households are likely to need larger incomes to reach the same standard of living as smaller households.

This indicator is still to be developed.
