Misery Index : Inflation Falls, Happiness Spikes

On the day that Action for Happiness launches, a genuine membership organisation for the promotion of happiness, we have re-calculated the Misery Index with the latest RPI off highs but at a still eye-watering 5.3% in March. Guido’s Misery Index is taken from the latest figures from the Office for National Statistics and incorporates inflation and unemployment as well as a deficit component. In addition to inflation going sideways, the seasonal low in the public sector net cash requirement has seen a spike in happiness.

Perhaps the sunshine is helping a little too…

N.B. Stats bods can check Guido’s adding up here.
