Income Statistics

Volume 447: debated on Tuesday 13 June 2006

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what his most recent estimate is of the average income per person in Houghton and Washington East. (76336)

The latest estimates for the mean and median of total income (for taxpayers) by constituency can be found in table 3.15 "Income and tax by Parliamentary Constituency" on HM Revenue and Customs website. http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/stats/income_distribution/menu-by-year.htm#315. The information is based on the latest Survey of Personal Incomes (2003-04).

Because sample sizes at constituency level are small and can demonstrate a large variability from year to year, inference from the information in the table should take into account the confidence intervals in table 3.15a "Income and tax by Parliamentary Constituency, Confidence Intervals".

Similar information including non-taxpayers is not available.
