As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question on average household income in Suffolk. (171616).
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) publishes estimates of regional gross disposable household income (GDHI)(1) using official statistical geographies known as Nomenclature of Units for Territorial Statistics (NUTS). This is income of the household and non profit institutions serving households (NPISH) sector rather than an average income of households. Suffolk is a NUTS3 region and GDHI per head estimates exist up to 2005. A consistent time series exists back to 1995.
These data are at current prices and therefore inflation is not taken into account.
The data table contains estimates of gross disposable household income (GDHI) per head for the NUTS3 region of Suffolk.
(1) Gross disposable household income (GDHI) is the amount of money that households have available for spending or saving after deductions and expenditure associated with income, e.g. taxes and social contributions and provision for future pension income.
|Gross disposable household income per head of population( 1, 2) for Suffolk 1997 to 2005|
|£ per head|
|(1 )Population measure is based upon mid-year estimate for total population.|
(2) Estimates are consistent with the national accounts series for the combined household and non-profit institutions serving households sectors as published in Blue Book 2006.
Mr. Boris Johnson:
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many and what percentage of (a) males and (b) females residing in London were (i) under five,
(ii) between five and 15, (iii) between 15 and 20, (iv) between 20 and 44, (v) between 45 and 65 and (vi) over 66 years of age in each of the last 10 years available, broken down by borough. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply-to your question .regarding how many and what percentage of (a) males and (b) females residing in London were (i) under five, (ii) between five and 15 (iii) between 15 and 20 (iv) between 20 and 44:(v) between 45 and 65 and (vi) over 66 years of age in each of the last 10 years available, broken down by borough. (169674)
Table 1 in the attached table shows the male and female population aged 0 to 4, 5 to 14, 15 to!9, 20 to 44, 45 to 65 and 66 plus for mid-1997 to mid-2006, for Greater London and its boroughs.
Table 2 in the attached table shows the percentage of the population for males and females aged 0 to 4, 5 to 14, 15 to 19, 20 to 44, 45 to 65 and 66 plus for mid-1997 to mid-2006, for Greater London and its boroughs. A copy of the tables has been placed in the House of Commons Library.
The mid-2006 population estimates are the latest available.
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your question regarding what the population turnover rates were of each London borough in each of the last five years, broken down by population age group. (169675)
ONS publish migration indicators at Local Authority level that show the total volume of migration to and from the local authority per 1000 head of population. These data provide a measure of population churn due to migration but they are not available by age. Therefore the population turnover rates by age that you requested cannot be provided.
As National Statistician, I have been; asked to reply to your questions regarding what estimate has been made of the population of Herefordshire in each year since 1997 and what estimate has been made of the population of Herefordshire aged 65 years and over in each year since 1997. (170951, 170952)
Table 1 shows the total population and the population aged 65 and over for Herefordshire for the years requested.
The latest population estimates available are for mid-2006.

Data are rounded to the nearest 1,000.

Mr. Swayne: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what representations he has received on the effectiveness of the retail price index in measuring the real cost of living; and if he will make a statement. 
Angela Eagle: The Chancellor and other Treasury Ministers receive a wide number of representations on economic and statistical issues. The Government believe that the maintenance of low and stable inflation is a crucial platform for increasing economic prosperity and achieving an affordable cost of living for all. Under this Governments monetary policy framework, the UK has benefited from its longest period of sustained low and stable inflation since the 1960s. GDP in the UK has now expanded for 61 consecutive quarters, the longest unbroken expansion on record.
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question about how many and what percentage of people in the UK were self-employed in each year since 1997. (170959)
Not seasonally adjusted and seasonally adjusted estimates for self-employed people are published each month in the Labour Market Statistics First Release in table 3. Please visit the following link;
The attached table has been derived from the published seasonally adjusted table 3. It shows the number of people aged 16 and over in the category requested for the three month period ending September each year, from 1997 to 2007. These estimates are seasonally adjusted.
Estimates are taken from the Labour Force Survey (LFS). As with any sample survey, estimates from the LFS are subject to a margin of uncertainty.
|Employment( 1) and self-employment: United Kingdom, seasonally adjusted, July-September 1997 to 2007|
|All in employment (Age 16 and over)|
|Three months ending September each year||Total in employment (Thousand)||Self - employed (Thousand)||Self - employed as a percentage of all those in employment|
|Relationship between columns: 3=2/1100|
(1) People aged 16 or over are classed as in employment by the LFS if they have done at least one hour of paid work (as an employee or self-employed) in the week prior to their LFS interview or if they have a job that they are temporarily away from. People who do unpaid work in a family business and people on Government-supported training and employment programmes are also included according to the International Labour Organisation convention.
The Labour Force Survey is a survey of the population of private households, student halls of residence and NHS accommodation. See Concepts and Definitions.

As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question asking how many and what percentage of people in Herefordshire were self-employed in each year since 1997. (170958)
The Office for National Statistics compiles employment statistics for local areas from the annual local area Labour Force Survey (LFS) and the Annual Population Survey (APS) following International Labour Organisation definitions.
The table attached shows numbers of self-employed people and these as a percentage of all employed in the Herefordshire county, for the 12 month periods ending in February from 1998 to 2004 from the annual local area LFS and for the 12 months ending in March from 2005 to 2007 from the APS.
Estimates for a subset of the population in a small geographical area are based on very small sample sizes, and are therefore subject to large margins of uncertainty. Changes over time should be treated with particular caution.
|Self-employed people resident in Herefordshire county|
|12 months ending :||Self-employed (thousand)||Self-employed as a percentage of all employed|
Estimates are subject to sampling variability.
Changes in the estimates over time should be treated with caution.
