Sources of personal income by total income

Proportion of people with investment income higher for those with higher income

 

The proportion of people receiving some income from investments was higher for those with higher income. Of those reporting their total personal income was:

  • $100,001 or more, 50.3 percent received at least some income from interest, dividends, rent, or other investments at some point in the previous 12 months
  • $15,000 or less, 9.2 percent received at least some income from interest, dividends, rent, or other investments at some point in the previous 12 months.

The proportion of people receiving some income from self-employment or business was higher for those with higher income. Of those reporting their total personal income was:

  • $100,001 or more, 37.1 percent received at least some income from self-employment or business at some point in the previous 12 months
  • $15,000 or less, 7.7 percent received at least some income from self-employment or business at some point in the previous 12 months.

Be cautious when cross-tabulating sources of income with total personal income, as people may obtain income from more than one source and for different periods of time.
