Individual Income is an indicator of socio-economic status, skills and occupations required in a particular industry. With other data sources, such as Qualifications and Occupation, it helps to evaluate the economic opportunities of people in an industry.

The amount of income an individual receives is linked to a number of factors including the person's employment status, age, qualifications and type of employment undertaken by the person.

Wages in the Cassowary Coast can vary greatly across industry sectors. As well as being related to the type of jobs and qualifications required in a particular industry, income levels can be related to the level of part-time employment, Occupations, Qualification and the Age structure of the local workers, so the data should be looked at in conjunction with these topics.
