UK: Relationship between Wealth, Income and Personal Well-being, July 2011 to June 2012

Source: Office for National Statistics (UK)


This article uses data from the Wealth and Assets Survey (WAS) for July 2011 to June 2012 which, for the first time, included measures of personal well-being. It describes the results of regression analysis considering the relationships between the total wealth or total income of the households in which individuals live and their personal well-being. Regression analysis is a statistical technique which was used to analyse variation in well-being outcomes by specific characteristics and circumstances of individuals while holding all other characteristics equal. This allows for a better understanding of what matters most to an individual’s personal well-being compared to analysis when different factors are considered separately.
