Ann Harding, Anthony King, Simon Kelly

    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.
