The Household Satellite Account (HHSA) measures unpaid home production in the UK. This account builds on the work first carried out by ONS (Holloway et al, 2002) who constructed the first UK HHSA in 2002. ONS have since updated various elements of full account; however, this is the first time the HHSA has been constructed in its entirety since 2002. The HHSA measures the value of adult and child care, household housing services, nutrition, clothing and laundry, transport and volunteering. There is also scope to include other home production activities within future iterations of the HHSA as ongoing development work takes place following this release.
