Sources of income

Households in the City of Adelaide have a lower amount of disposable income compared to South Australia.

Household disposable income is a measure of the amount of income available to an average household in the area.

Areas with high unemployment, large numbers of retirees and others out of the workforce may have a high cash benefits component.
