Regional Gross Disposable Houshold Income, 1997 to 2010
Statistics on regional disposable income include data for the UK countries and English regions and for sub-regions across the UK for the period up to calendar year 2010. The latest release updates the statistics previously released on 30 March 2011.
The key points for Wales from the latest release are:
- Headline gross disposable household income (GDHI) per head in Wales in 2010 was £13,783 or 87.7 per cent of the UK average, up 0.2 percentage points relative to the UK average on 2009. This proportion increased year-on-year between 1999 and 2005, it then saw a slight decrease to 2007, after which it remained the same until an increase in the latest period. (doc 2).
- Wales saw the third largest percentage increase in GDHI per head out of the UK countries and English regions between 1999 and 2010, up 51.3 per cent compared to a 47.9 per cent increase across the UK. (doc 3)
- Wales saw the joint largest percentage increase in GDHI per head alongside London and the South West out of the UK countries and English regions between 2009 and 2010, all up 3.3 per cent compared to 3.0 per cent for the UK as a whole. (doc 3)
- The estimates for 2010 show that GDHI per head in East Wales and West Wales and the Valleys were 91.5 per cent and 85.5 per cent of the UK average respectively (doc 4).
- West Wales and the Valleys has seen an increase of 50.9 per cent in GDHI per head since 1999, while East Wales has seen a 51.8 per cent increase, both above the increase for the UK (up 47.9 per cent).
- GDHI per head in Wales in 2010 was the 4th lowest amongst the UK countries and English regions, ahead of the North East, Northern Ireland and Yorkshire & the Humber. This ranking changed between 2008 and 2009 when Wales overtook Northern Ireland and Yorkshire and the Humber, moving from being the 2nd lowest to the 4th lowest.
The dataset on StatsWales will be updated in due course to include these new data, as well as estimates for the 12 NUTS3 areas of Wales.
