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.

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, Qualifications and the Age structure of the local workers, so the data should be looked at in conjunction with these topics.
