Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council area

Household expenditure

In 2017/18, household expenditure on utilities was $4,037 in the Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council area, higher compared to NSW.

Household Expenditure is modelled based on a set of expenditure items collected every 5 years in the ABS Household Expenditure Survey. Household Expenditure is a useful measure of the economic resources available to households in the area and where their income is spent. Areas with good public transport infrastructure and access to jobs may spend less on transport and more on discretionary spending such as entertainment. More disadvantaged areas may spend a higher proportion of their income on food and transport. An examination of the distribution of household spending per household may provide insights into the socio-economic status of the area.
