The AGHDS is a confidentialised unit record file that provides point in time data for income units in receipt of Centrelink social security payments and families receiving Family Tax Benefit (FTB) Part A.
from 30/6/2006 to 25/6/2021
National and State
Restricted unit record access subject to Ethics Committee approval and/or the agreement of all relevant data custodians in all states and territories (charges may apply).
There are restrictions and limitations governing the availability or use of other data in this holding.
Combines information from numerous Centrelink files to create records at an income unit level, rather than person or household level. An income unit consists of a person, the person’s partner, and any children for whom the couple may receive FTB Part A. Single social security recipients living together in the same household are regarded as separate income units. One person in each income unit is classified as the primary reference person based on sex and the type of payment received.
Includes information about type of housing, amount of weekly income, payment type and other characteristics of income units.
