Taxation Statistics by Postcode

Been looking to add average salary by Australian post code information to a data model that I am designing.

Initially my searches, despite the power of google, didn’t come up with too much. The ABS site, you would think would be the first port of call, but they group average wage by this notion of the “Local Government Area” (LGA).

There is some discussion online about how to transform the LGA code to a postcode – which was a step that I quite seriously wanted to avoid.

However after searching for “taxation statistics 2009-10” on google, I found what I was looking for on the ATO site – you do have to search on their site quite hard though.

Under the “Detailed tables and description” -> “Personal Tax”
