Mae mesur lles cenedlaethol yn ymwneud ag edrych y tu hwnt i'r hyn a gynhyrchir gennym, i feysydd megis iechyd, perthnasau, addysg a sgiliau, yr hyn rydym yn ei wneud, lle'r ydym yn byw, ein sefyllfa ariannol a'r amgylchedd.

Gross domestic product (GDP) per head grew by 0.1% in Quarter 2 (Apr to June) 2017 compared with the previous quarter and increased by 0.9% compared with the same quarter a year ago (Quarter 2 2016).
Net national disposable income (NNDI) per head increased by 2.0% between Quarter 2 2016 and Quarter 2 2017, due mainly to a £6.4 billion increase in the income received from the UK’s foreign direct investment from abroad.
Despite improvements in both GDP per head and NNDI per head, real household disposable income (RHDI) per head declined by 1.1% in Quarter 2 2017 compared with the same quarter a year ago; this was the fourth consecutive quarter that RHDI per head has decreased – the longest period of consistent negative growth since the end of 2011.
