Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper examines trends in the wealth and incomes of older Australians
over the 11 years from 1985-86 to 1996-97. The primary data sources for
this analysis are the ABS 1986 Income Survey and 1997-98 Survey of
Income and Housing Costs ‘confidentialised’ unit record files. These surveys
provide very comprehensive national snapshots of the income, socio-demographic
and other characteristics of a representative sample of Australians.
