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. Mae hefyd yn mesur ein lles personol, asesiad unigolyn o'i les ei hun. Daw'r data hyn o amrywiaeth o ffynonellau, ac mae llawer o'r gwaith dadansoddi yn newydd.
In Quarter 4 (Oct to Dec) 2016, gross domestic product (GDP) in the UK per head increased by 0.5% compared with the previous quarter and 1.2% compared with the same quarter a year ago (Quarter 4 2015).
Net national disposable income per head increased by 5.9% between Quarter 4 2015 and Quarter 4 2016, mainly due to a £7.6 billion increase in the income received from the UK’s foreign direct investment abroad.
Real household disposable income per head declined by 0.5% between Quarter 4 2015 and Quarter 4 2016, largely driven by increasing prices of goods and services.
An assessment of UK progress against a set of headline national well-being indicators, which include our health, natural environment, personal finances and crime. Change over time is also assessed to establish whether national well-being is improving or deteriorating.
The Sustainable Development Indicators (SDIs) provide an overview of progress towards a sustainable economy, society and environment. There are 12 headline and 23 supplementary indicators, supported by 25 and 41 measures respectively. Where there are sufficient data to be compared, measures have been assessed over the long-term and short-term to show if there has been clear improvement, deterioration or if there has been little or no overall change.
