Income (salary) data may be recorded within DARS, but only where it has been self-reported - i.e. shared or published - by the individual. It is not permissable to capture predicted or otherwise unsubstantiated income data in the System. All such data should be stored in the 'Self-reported Annual Income' attribute, held within the Modelling and Prospensity area.

Grouping of data

The selectable values for this attribute are based upon standard UK income bands (see Wikipedia). However, in some cases these have been grouped together, noting that many constituents may prefer fewer but broader options and/or be discouraged by too many higher-level values. As a general rule, grouped data is better for querying and analysis purposes in DARS.

Migrating source data

For mapped data through migrations, the source value may be retained within the Comment field of the Modelling & Propensity Attribute, having selected the closest available income band. For example, a free-text entry of “Re-mapped from College’s source data value of £200,000-£300,000” can be added against the selected value of £200,000-£499,999.
