How does your income compare?

March 23, 2018 - 02:10 -- Admin

Have you ever wondered how your income compares to other Australians? Well use this calculator thing I made to look it up then. It takes your household’s after-tax income and adjusts it for the number of people in your house to give your ‘equivalised disposable household income.’ The calculator uses ABS data from 2015-16, which was released in September 2017.

New blog

February 17, 2018 - 11:00 -- Admin


I’m starting this new blog as an outlet for graphs and little bits of analysis I do in my spare time. The posts will usually (though not always) relate to economics, public policy, and/or politics, but it won’t be political in the sense of advancing or defending a particular agenda.

I’m going to use this blog in part as graph practice, which will include re-making graphs I find elsewhere that I think can be improved.
