Estimated net income distribution of working households by household type and locality

Information about household incomes at a local level has long been acknowledged as a gap in available data. Social landlords in particular often need household incomes at local authority level in order to set, for example, Affordable Rents for different sizes of property, and to assess the potential market for shared ownership development.

Fence Between TenuresTo address this issue, CCHPR has developed a model to estimate household income distribution by percentile for eight household types at local market level using the latest available data – this could be local authority level, or lower, e.g. ward level. A sample report for Bromley (at Mid-Super Output Area) level is available for download:

Estimated net income distribution for eight household types in the London Borough of Bromley at mid-Super Output Area (SOA) level

Critically, the incomes produced exclude income-related benefits. This produces a picture of actual incomes without the rent-related impact of Housing Benefits.

CCHPR has carried out analyses for various organisations, including housing associations and local authorities – at considerably lower cost than offered elsewhere. Whether your organisation requires data outputs (with or without accompanying charts) or full reports including commentary please email an outline of your requirements to Chihiro Udagawa for a quotation.
