Average Weekly Family income

Taken as what the average family earn on a weekly basis before tax. The average of all states in 2006 was $1226 before tax. The ACT recorded the highest pay packet of $1874 per week. The ACT has also recorded the fastest nominal growth rate in family incomes between 1991 and 2006, growing by 110% in total over the period.

Going forward SQM Research projects that Queensland will have the fastest growing nominal family income; rising by 29.8% for the period 2007 – 2016.

SQM research has found that income has a strong influence on real estate  price growth; more so that population growth, over the long term.
