Household Incomes

Volume 449: debated on Wednesday 19 July 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what the (a) median and (b) mean household income was in each London borough in each of the last five years. (83677)

The data source does not allow us to provide robust income estimates below a regional level. Therefore we do not produce information for individual London boroughs.

Information is presented in the table for London as a whole. This is consistent with the latest publication of the ‘Households Below Average Income 1994-95 to 2004-05’.

The data are from Households Below Average Income (HBAI). The main source for HBAI is the Family Resources Survey (FRS).

Note:

Figures are provided using three-year moving averages, as single-year estimates do not provide a robust guide to year on year changes. Hence, figures are not consistent with previously published single-year estimates and there may be differences in changes over time.
