Statistics NZ released the latest Income Survey last Friday.
From the tables, the following caught my eye.
Asian median incomes are rising fast. Over the 2011 - 2015 period, their income from self-employment was also growing at the fastest rate; income from government transfers was the lowest and declining (largely reflecting a younger population).
In part the increases across all groups represent a recovery from the GFC but the Asian increase is a stand out.
