    LOL no wonder Bugaboos are so popular with all these millionaire mums!

    (no I am not one of them ROFL)

    We will probably be in the six figure category this year but after tax it's a different story.

    The wealthiest 20% of households in 2005-06 accounted for 61% of total household net worth, with average net worth of $1.7 million per household. In comparison, the poorest 20% of households accounted for 1% of total household net worth and had an average net worth of $27,000 per household

    Exactly why some socialism is in order.

    Average income


    The average wage is $ 50,000 p/a, the median would be more like $30,000 - $ 40,000 p/a. The minimum wage for an Australian worker is $12.95 p/h for a full time worker
    "The average pay packet might be $57,000, but very few people are actually earning that. it is skewed because of the massive pay packets of the upper end of the scale which hide the fact that most people are earning between $35,000 to $40,000
    http://www.news.com.au/business/stor...90-462,00.html

    So that would be 30- 40, 000

    does net worth = income? I would have thought it would have something to do with assets etc?

    Gross = the money you earn before paying tax.
    Net= the money you are left with after paying tax

    No, net worth does not equal income. Income is a flow concept, while net worth is a stock concept. And yes, net worth is the sum of all assets owned less the debt owed.

    The pension is a taxable income...it's the family tax A and B that's not
    Not everyone on BH has children, I can think of a few students too

    No idea!!! As I work casual, and DF works a lot of overtime...

    I have estimated with centrelink $75 but that's likely to be way over the top as I've stopped working...

    Were in the 80,000 - 100,000 range. DF works his butt off to get though.
