    Figure 11: Total income by industry segment over five years

    This column graph shows the trend of total income over five years from 2015–16 to 2019–20, by industry segment (banking, finance and investment; insurance; manufacturing, construction and agriculture; wholesale, retail and services and mining, energy and water). With the exception of the banking, finance and investment segment which dropped slightly in 2016-17 and again in 2018-19 and 2019-20 and the insurance segment which dropped in 2016–17 before increasing and dropping again in 2019-20, the total income across all other industry segments has steadily increased. This graph also shows that aggregate total income has increased over the five years.
