Income status of person, level

Income status refers to the position of a person or household's income in relation to a low income line.

Person refers to an individual and is the unit of analysis for most social statistics programmes.

The data for this variable are reported using the following classifications and/or lists:

  • Income status (LIM-AT)

    In the 2011 National Household Survey (NHS), low-income statistics are presented based on the after-tax low-income measure (LIM-AT). This measure is not related to the low-income cut-offs (LICO) presented in the 2006 Census and prevalence rates are conceptually not comparable.
