Personal income by tax year statistics

These National Statistics (Accredited Official) tables provide detailed information on individuals who could be liable to UK Income Tax, and their incomes.

The personal income tables in this series include breakdowns by sex, age, income and tax distribution, income source, country and geographical area. They are based on the Survey of Personal Incomes (SPI) which is an annual sample of administrative data from HMRC records.

You can find individual tables for the latest tax year and previous tax years below.

You can find more information about these statistics and collated tables for the latest and previous tax years on the Statistics about personal incomes page.

You can find tables for tax years 2009 to 2010 and earlier on the National Archives website.

Supporting documentation on the methodology used to produce these statistics is available in the release for each tax year.

Note: comparisons over time may be affected by changes in methodology. Notably, there was a revision to the grossing factors in the 2018 to 2019 publication, which is discussed in the commentary and supporting documentation for that tax year. Further details, including a summary of significant methodological changes over time, data suitability and coverage, are included in the Background Quality Report.
