Households Below Average Income Reports

The next edition of the Households Below Average Income report for Northern Ireland will be released on 25th November 2014.
The Households Below Average Income (HBAI report ) for Northern Ireland publication uses data collected in the Family Resources Survey (FRS) with a focus on income and living standards.  The statistics and commentary give an insight into the standard of living of the household population in Northern Ireland
The HBAI uses household disposable incomes, adjusted for household size and composition, as a proxy for material living standards, or more precisely for the level of consumption of goods and services that people could attain given the disposable income of the household in which they live.
