Income figures have been deflated to 2015 to 2016 prices using the implied deflator for the household sector.
Income is equivalised using the modified-OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) scale.
Due to differences in the sampling methodology of the 2 estimates, their time periods are not directly comparable. The reference period for equivalised household disposable income is the financial year ending in March. On the other hand, the share of people in mixed and working households is published twice a year, once for the period between April and June and the other between October and December. Given these restrictions, the equivalised household disposable income for the financial year ending in March is compared with the share of people in mixed and working household in the April to June period at the start of that financial year.
