Notes

Material standard of living is defined as the things that money can buy, and so does not represent the capacity to enjoy life, or the state of health. One usually resident member of the household aged 18 years or over was randomly selected to respond to survey questions about their material standard of living. The material well-being index (MWI) should not be compared over time. Income is before tax, from regular and recurring sources only. Income figures are collected for people aged 15 years or over. Income groups are quintiles (to the nearest hundred dollars) of household income. Adequacy of income to meet everyday needs: This refers to the income of an individual, or a couple's combined income where the couple live in the same household. Household counts in columns are rounded to the nearest hundred. Figures may not sum to stated totals, due to rounding.
