Sources of income

Households in the RDA Darling Downs and South West Region have a lower amount of disposable income compared to Queensland.

Household disposable income is a measure of the amount of income available to an average household in the area. It varies depending on the jobs held by the residents, amount of property and business income, and cash benefits provided by government, which are related to the socio-economic status of the area.
