The Survey of Income and Housing

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    This data survey presents an introduction to the Survey of Income and Housing (SIH), a cross-sectional household survey of individuals living in Australian private dwellings starting in 1969. This article provides an overview of the SIH and a description of the content of the most recent edition collected over the course of the 2015-16 financial year. The overview compares and contrasts the SIH to its longitudinal cousin the Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) survey, outlining strengths and limits of both data sources depending on the type of research question.
