We are reporting on data from 2013/14 as the data collection mode (from face-to-face to online/paper) changed and data would not be comparable with earlier years. From 2013/14 to 2015/16, household income categories were - Band A1 - Under £5,000; Band A2 - £5,000 to £9,999; Band A3 - £10,000 to £14,999; Band A4 - £15,000 to £19,999; Band A5 - £20,000 to £29,999; Band A6 - £30,000 to £49,999; Band A7 - £50,000 to £74,999; Band A8 - £75,000 or more. From 2016/17 onwards, the household income categories were changed to - Band B1 - Under £5,199; Band B2 - £5,200 to £10,399; Band B3 - £10,400 to £15,599; Band B4 - £15,600 to £20,799; Band B5 - £20,800 to £31,199; Band B6 - £31,200 to £51,999; Band B7 - £52,000 to £74,999; Band B8 - £75,000 or more. This indicator is being used as an approximation of the UN SDG Indicator. Where possible, we will work to identify or develop UK data to meet the global indicator specification. This indicator has been identified in collaboration with topic experts.
