Dataset:Financial wealth: wealth in Great Britain
15 March 2019
As announced on 18 February 2019, an error occurred in tables associated with Wealth in Great Britain Wave 5: July 2014 to June 2016. This affects measures of aggregate wealth primarily, though all other indicators such as medians have been affected to some degree. This was due to the incorrect population estimates being used for the survey weights for data relating to Wave 4 (July 2012 to June 2014) and Wave 5 (July 2014 to June 2016) of the Wealth and Assets Survey (WAS). In addition, some small errors in the derivation of specific components of wealth have also been corrected: personal pensions (Wave 5 only) and financial liabilities (Waves 2,3,4 and 5). We have corrected this error in this release and all other data affected. You can see the original data in the Wealth in Great Britain Wave 5: 2014 to 2016 bulletin.
