Gross Domestic Household Income (GDHI) is a measure of the income individuals in the household sector have available to invest or spend. GDHI measures household incomes after taxes, transfers and pension contributions and after accounting for expenses related to income generated (for example, interest on mortgages and other loans is deducted). To compare areas of different size, GDHI per head of population is used, and is calculated using the entire resident population of an area. ONS regional GDHI data provide an overview of disposable income at regional, sub-regional and local area levels.
