Income Bands - Standard Classification

"Income bands are a convenient and alternate way of collecting income information when income is not the prime focus of a survey. Bands reduce respondent burden by providing a simple way to obtain contextual information about income. Income bands are often tabulated with other variables such as age, occupation and education qualifications to provide information on the relationship between these variables and the income distribution of the population.
