An update has been made within the Personal finance domain to Median wealth per household, including pension wealth to bring the indicator into line with the latest published data from the Wealth and Assets survey.
An update has been made to the date period for the measure Percentage of adults aged 16 and over participating in at least 30 minutes of sport at moderate intensity at least once a week within the What we do domain. The data themselves are unchanged.
This article outlines the latest review of domains and measures of national well-being and is part of the ongoing refinement of measures. Also published by the Measuring National Well-being programme today is What matters most to Personal Well-being in the UK, available on the Well-being publications page, an updated Well-being wheel, and an expanded range of interactive charts both of which can be accessed on the Well-being landing page.
The need for measures to be ‘available for the UK’ is classified as ‘aspirational’, to prevent important components of well-being being excluded on the basis of data availability
