Every region in the UK is more prosperous than it was 12 months ago, according to new research from Barclays.

The Barclays Prosperity Index compiles a number of measures from official data — including GDP, employment, household expenditure, and number of millionaires — to give a score for each region.

Here is the map:

While London is still ahead in terms of key measurements including earnings and house prices, there are signs that increased prosperity is being distributed across the rest of the country, too.

For example, house prices rose more dramatically in both Cambridge and Bristol, at 14% and 13% respectively, than London, where they rose by 11%.

Cities outside of the South East also performed well in terms of entrepreneurial output, with Manchester, Cardiff, and Sheffield all seeing dramatic increases in small-and-medium business turnover.

The figures also revealed that 690,000 people in the UK are now millionaires, the equivalent to 1 in every 67. That number has increased by 34% since 2010.
