GDP growth is the most prominent indicator of economic performance, however, it usually does not provide a full picture on the economic well-being of people. The first two charts show how much GDP and household income have grown since the first quarter of 2007. In most OECD countries, GDP dropped sharply at the beginning of the economic crisis, while the impact on household income was less pronounced. One of the explaining factors of the different movement was the impact of government intervention which is shown on the third chart, net cash transfers to households, of this dashboard.
