The table shows median income for earh educational group in PPS. PPS is artificial, unified currency which is used in the European Union to show economic values for comparison between countires in order to adjust for price difference between countries.

Definiation of income in this table is equivaliized household income. The table shows median values for each education group.

Equivalized disposable income is defined as disposable income after tax taking into account the household size and the efficiency achieved in the househiold speniding as more than more person are living together. Expenditures for children are assumed to be lower than for adults. To take this into account a forumula from Eurostat is used which gives the first adult the value 1, other persons 14 years and older receive the value 0.5 and children under the age of 14 receive the value 0.3. Therefore a couple with two chiildren, younger than 14 years old who have 500 thousand ISK in disposable income per month have (500 / (1 + 0.5 + 0.3 + 0.3)) = 500 / 2.1 = 238 thousand ISK in equivalized disposable income.

According to Eurostat procedures the years of the table refer to the survey year, the year the survey was implemented. The income reference period is the previous tax year.
