Consistent and reliable gross household income estimates for all UK postcodes

CACI has developed Paycheck to provide consistent and reliable gross household income estimates at full postcode level across the UK. It uses information from CACI's lifestyle database, in conjunction with data from the ONS’s Average Weekly Earnings and Living Costs & Food Survey to build a consistent and statistically reliable model. Income reflected by Paycheck is gross household income from all sources including earnings, benefits and investments. As well as providing the mean, median and mode income, it also breaks down into £5,000 bands up to £200,000 plus.

Public Sector organisations use Paycheck to complement their own local data supporting a wide range of needs including Strategic Housing Market Assessments, Local Plans and Joint Strategic Needs Assessments.

Financial Services companies use the data to understand and manage the requirements of more affluent consumers for premium banking as well as providing input to insurance underwriting decisions.

Residential Developers use Paycheck to understand the affordability of housing around new developments to underpin site acquisition, unit pricing and planning applications.
