Geoff Riley's curator insight, December 24, 2014 4:20 AM

Economic wellbeing is not simply the product of the published GDP figures telling us just where we are in the business cycle. There are many more aspects to wellbeing than this and the UK Office for National Statistics has published their annual survey of alternative indicators. 

 

Why despite a period of healthy recovery are so many people worse off than at the start of the last recession. This selection of charts helps to provide the answer. 

 

In the 3rd quarter of 2014, UK GDP per head increased 0.6% compared to Q2 2014 but remains 1.8% below pre-economic downturn levels. This was a slightly slower growth rate than the 0.7% quarterly increase seen in GDP.


Net National Disposable Income (NNDI) per head, which represents the income for UK residents, has remained broadly flat since Q1 2012 and remains 5.6% below pre-economic downturn levels.
