Abstract: In this paper, I examine whether income hedging influences asset allocation decisions of Australian households. Using the HILDA survey and characterizing income risk using industry-level variables, I fail to detect robust evidence that income hedging plays a statistically or economically significant role in the allocation decisions of the cross-section of Australian households.
