Census - Incomes by qualification, study participation, age and industry 2013
Highest qualification is derived for people aged 15 years and over, and combines highest secondary school qualification and post-school qualification to obtain a single highest qualification by category of attainment.
Study participation measures those attending, studying, or enrolled at school or anywhere else. It is grouped into full-time study (20 hours or more a week), part-time study (less than 20 hours a week), and those not studying.
Industry is the type of activity undertaken by the organisation that employs the individuals.
Personal Income represents the before-tax income for people in the 12 months ending 31 March 2013.
Income may be from a variety of sources e.g. salary and wages, business, interest and dividends from investments, benefits etc.
Median and Means are calculated using randomly rounded counts and rounded to the nearest $100.
Percentages were calculated by Figure.NZ
Study participation proportions are calculated by dividing the study count by Total Stated, within each industry AND age AND qualification.
Highest qualification proportions are calculated by dividing the count of Total Study Participation for each qualification by Total Stated, within each industry AND age.
Age Group proportions are calculated by dividing the count of Total Highest Qualification for each age group by Total, within each industry.
Limitations of the data
Confidentiality rules have been applied to all cells in this table, including randomly rounding to base 3.
Individual figures may not add up to totals, and values for the same data may vary in different tables.
Data cells have been suppressed where fewer than 6 individuals/households occur.
For categories with small populations the median and mean income may not look as expected because of the effect of random rounding.
