This FACT indicates the average household weekly income in each Australian capital city. Household weekly incomes were not expressly collected in the Census, but can be derived from personal income data. As it is not possible to aggregate personal income ranges, a specific dollar amount was imputed for each personal income range selected by families or household members. For the 2011 Census processing, the weighted median estimates of gross weekly personal income from the 2009-10 Survey of Income and Housing (SIH), adjusted for inflation to mid-2011, were calculated for each of the reported ranges in the Census. The median has been utilised as it gives a more accurate reflection of the overall data set, as it is not impacted by outliers (or figures that lie far outside of the regular data range). These averages were then allocated to each person who reported an income range in the Census. The city with the highest average household weekly income is Canberra with A$1947 per week. The city with the lowest is Hobart with A$1065 per week.

High is good
