The unit of measurement for Human capital has been corrected to trillions instead of billions. This correction affects the Wheel of measures and the Domains and measures spreadsheet.
In addition Households with good transport access to key services or work was labelled with a percentage sign. This has been removed as the indicator should be expressed as an index where 2010 = 100. The figures themselves are unchanged.
A ‘Population mental well-being’ measure has been added to the personal well-being domain.
A 'Median household income’ measure has been added to the personal finance domain and the ‘Real household actual income per head’ measure has been removed from the economy domain.
The calculation has changed for the ‘Has a spouse, family member or friend to rely on if they have a serious problem’ measure in the Our relationships domain.
In the Natural environment domain, the source for ‘Energy consumed within the UK from renewable sources’ has changed so the measure is on a UK territory basis.
