Report Reveals Men Remain Breadwinners
Monday, 6th January 2014 at 10:52 am

Australian women are earning only 64 per cent of the average Australian male's wage and salary income, according to a report by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).

According to ABS Director Lisa Conolly, while average wage and salary income in Australia for 2010-11 was $51,923, males recorded a higher average of $62,699 compared with $40,312 for females.

"The report shows that men earn more than women in every state and territory with the gap being particularly large in Western Australia where females earn only 55 per cent of the average male income,” Conolly said.

"These figures have not changed much since 2005-06.”

Since 2005-06 Australia recorded an average annual earnings growth rate of 4.9 per cent.

Western Australia and Queensland recorded the highest average annual growth rates of 6.9 per cent and 5.5 per cent respectively and New South Wales and Victoria both recorded the lowest average annual growth rates of 4.4 per cent.

"Overall the Australian Capital Territory continued to have the highest average wage and salaries income at $60,987. This was followed by Western Australia on $57,365 and the Northern Territory on $54,082,” Conolly said.

"However, Sydney provided eight out of Australia's top 10 regions for the highest average wage and salary income.

"Mosman was ranked first, ($123,235) followed by Hunters Hill – Woolwich ($106,695), Double Bay – Bellevue Hill ($100,443), Willoughby – Castle Cove – Northbridge ($99,649), and Woollahra ($99,527).”
