Estimates and interpretation of trends in the levels and sources of pensioners' incomes throughout the financial year 2012 to 2013.
Four small errors have been identified in this data and the Pensioners’ Incomes Series publication for 2013/14. Read the revision note.
We have produced this publication according to the arrangements approved by the UK Statistics Authority. It updates the statistics released on 11 July 2013.
The key points from this release are:
- mean net income after housing costs has risen faster than before housing costs
- pensioners’ mean net income has grown faster than incomes for the whole population over the last 14 years
- median net income has grown faster than the mean net income for both before housing costs and after housing costs (pensioners in the middle of the income distribution have seen faster growth than those in the upper end of the distribution)
