An annual report, produced by the Office for National Statistics, which shows data on household expenditure per week and household disposable income.
Average household expenditure
Release date: 16 February 2017
2013-14 to 2015-16
Wales had the second lowest average household expenditure per week out of the 12 UK countries and English regions (£447.00), ahead of the North East (£423.50). However, average household size differs in each region. Average expenditure per person in Wales was £191.00. This was the third lowest amongst the devolved countries and English regions, just above the West Midlands (£186.10) and North East (£189.70).
Average household disposable income
Release date: 8 December 2015
2012 to 2014
Wales had the fifth lowest average weekly household disposable income out of the 12 UK countries and English regions (£566), ahead of the North East (£502), Northern Ireland (£515), Yorkshire and The Humber (£553) and the North West (£560) (table A41). Due to differences in household size, the figure for weekly disposable income per person in Wales was also higher than that for Northern Ireland and the North East.
