Letter from Karen Dunnell, dated 12 June 2006:

As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question about Gross Disposable Household Income (GDHI) for the UK and each region and county in each year since 2001. (75485)

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) produce estimates for GDHI in Nomenclature of Units for Territorial Statistics (NUTS) regions. Estimates are not produced separately at the county level. GDHI figures up to and including 2004 (the latest year for which estimates are available) were published in May 2006. Estimates for UK and NUTS1, 2 and 3 GDHI can be accessed in table 3.1 through the following link: http://www.statistics.gov.uk/downloads/theme_economy/Results_ Tables_Values.xls
