Headline data

Source: Office for National Statistics (ONS)

Geographical Area: United Kingdom

Unit of Measurement: GBP (£), Percentage of total expenditure (%)

Footnote: Data is suppressed if the unweighted sample counts are less than 10 reporting households. Some figures for expenditure by age, disposable income, and health product or service should be used with extra caution because they are based on fewer than 20 reporting households - these figures are specified in source 1. Data for year ending 2002 to year ending 2006 and year ending 2015 to year ending 2022 are shown in financial years. 2006 to 2013 data are shown in calendar years. The y axis does not go to 100% for ease of visualisation for the 'percentage of total expenditure' series.
