Distributional analysis

This document sets out the impact on households of tax and welfare reforms as well as changes to public service spending since the beginning of the last parliament. It considers impacts on a cumulative basis, capturing the combined effect of measures from all fiscal events. The analysis is presented for 2019-20 and includes measures announced at Budget 2016.

Policy costings

The policy costings document sets out the assumptions and methodologies used in the government’s costing of policy decisions announced since the Spending Review and Autumn Statement 2015. For each decision it contains a description of the measure, the base, the methodology for the costing (including relevant adjustments for behavioural responses) and highlights any areas of additional uncertainty.

Data sources

This document details all of the data sources used throughout the Budget 2016. In order to be transparent, it informs readers of the Budget where the data used in the charts, tables and text comes from and how it has been calculated.
