ONS has recently published two articles one on Health and the other on Self reported financial situation. This can be found on the ONS website.

Health
This article analyses by age and other variables two of the current measures of national well-being: 'satisfaction with health' and 'evidence of mental ill-health (GHQ)' and their relationship to well-being. There is also contextual information about other variables related to health which may affect an individual's well-being. The data used are from Understanding Society, the UK Household Longitudinal Study (UKHLS) 2010-11.
Self reported financial situation
This article analyses by age two of the current measures of national well-being: 'satisfaction with income' and 'those who are finding their financial situation quite or very difficult' and their relationship to well-being. There will also be some indication of change in perceived financial situation over time and by other characteristics of individuals. The data used are from Understanding Society, the UK Household Longitudinal Study.
