  • income provides only a partial view of the economic resources available to households to support consumption. What is happening to their wealth is also important in assessing whether current consumption is sustainableshows household wealth on this basis in real terms, using the GDP deflator to correct for changes in the price level. The figure shows that there was an increase in household wealth from 1997 to 2007, driven mainly by rising house prices. However, the onset of the recession in 2008 saw the net worth of household dropped significantly, but in 2012 it recovered and was almost at the pre-crises level

    13. 13. How do we measure unemployment? Labour Force Survey: • c. 42,000 households equates to around 100,000 individuals every quarter • Random sample, stratified by postcode • Representative of the whole UK population • Each case weighted by age, sex and geography • 60 million people  100,000 = 600 (average weight) • Therefore each interview is equivalent to 600 people • Complete sample over three months 13

    15. 15. Single month estimates • Based on one month’s sample • Weighted separately • Seasonally adjusted • Benchmarked to three-month estimates • But… Greater sampling variability Can reflect characteristics of sample in a particular month 15
    16. 16. Single month unemployment 16
    17. 17. LFS NSQR recommendations – single month • As an improvement to the currently published single month estimates, a new weighting methodology based on that used for the quarterly estimates be developed • The minor modifications identified by the review be applied to the seasonal adjustment of the single month estimates and that they be subject to more regular review in accordance with the ONS standard seasonal adjustment review • Continue with the current single month estimates benchmarking method, unless superseded by developments in the weighting • The single month estimates metadata be improved • The existing project to develop state space models be continued with a higher level of priority than that which is currently being applied 17

    19. 19. Key Findings • GDP recovered substantially from the falls in recent years, but GDP per capita has only recovered a little • Real net national disposable income per capita has continued to fall gently • Real adjusted household disposable income per capita held up well during the deepest phase of the recession but has been falling gently in the subsequent period • Median household income and real household income have grown broadly in line with each other in recent years, suggesting no major distributional factors
    20. 20. Way forward • Regular publication of additional measures • Continue to develop and refine additional measures (eg natural capital, human capital) • Update the ‘dashboard’ accordingly • Update the Household Satellite Accounts
