SNAP identifies two kinds of institutions: consuming units (mostly households); and production units (mainly corporations and non-profit institutions and government). This section relates to the Household Sector in Scotland which covers people living in traditional households as well as those living in institutions, such as retirement homes and prisons. The sector also includes sole trader enterprises and non-profit institutions serving households (NPISHs) for example, charities and universities.

Gross Disposable Household Income

Gross Disposable Household Income (GDHI) is derived from the balances of primary and secondary income. The balance of primary income, for example, is the difference between total primary resouces and total primary uses. Primary resources include income from employment, operating surpluses, income from self-employment and property income. Primary uses relate to propery income paid. Secondary resources include social benefits received and other current transfers received. Secondary uses include taxes paid on income and wealth, social contributions paid, and other current transfers paid.
