    I'm quite lucky to have a well-paid job in a family business available to me when I'm not in university. It's where I was working before I decided to go back. That was last year's calculations where I worked approximately 21 weeks in total.

    Isn't it per household? I house-share with a friend, and we both do pull in a considerable amount considering our market is one of the hardest out there.

    If it's just mine, it won't be anywhere near as good. :)

    Me and a mate living together:

    You have a higher income than around 98% of the population - equivalent to about 59.4 million individuals.

    I did it correctly before, so combining me and my girlfriend together we are better off than 99% of the UK population, I am about 97% and my girlfriend 98% individually. This is based on our US income + bonuses after US taxes, so the standing within the US may be much lower but the value within the UK is still interesting to see.

    We both finished our PhDs about 1 year ago.

    you have a higher income than around 37% of the population - equivalent to about 22.4 million individuals.

    2 adults + 1 dependent child of 0-13

    If i was doing the same job in the private sector that'd probably be over 50% which is a sad fact.

    You missed who actually wrote that, if AberystwythLAD has actually seen a fanny he didn't crawl out I would be impressed.

    And in all honesty, you'd probably have stricter hours and more job volatility. Swings and roundabouts...

    Pretty much about the same as me.

    And then I put in the numbers for when our next two children arrive (we're currently expecting twins) and it plumments down to just over 50th centile.
