That's right. And the step response has a -6dB/Oct tilt in the frequency domain too due to the integration. (Sometimes a step response is used because it's easier to obtain from a given system than an impulse response.)

In general you can characterise the frequency response of an LTI system with either:

1. Impulse / step response 
2. Response to white / pink noise 
3. Response to frequency sweep (chirp)

They all have different advantages / disadvantages.
