Benefit Claimants by 2017 Area Unit for March 2021

Adam Ward made this Official Information request to Ministry of Social Development

Currently waiting for a response from Ministry of Social Development, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: Adam Ward

Dear Ministry of Social Development,

Please could you provide a data set specifying the number of people claiming the following types of benefits by 2017 Area Unit Boundary:

- Job Seeker Support (JS Related)
- Sole Parent Support (SPS Related)
- Supported Living Payment (SLP Related)
- Other benefits

for the quarter/s ending March 2021.

We understand that benefit claimant figures lower than 5 will be suppressed as per the criteria of section 9(2)(a) of the Official Information Act and stipulations of the Privacy Act 1993.

This request is essentially a follow on request to job number IMSD-5348. The data required is exactly the same as provided under this job number but for the quarter/s specified above. As per our previous arrangements we understand that a charge will be associated to the provision of the data. Please feel free to contact either myself or Dr Paul Bracewell ([email address]) if you require any further information about our request.

Since we request this data from you each quarter, we would like set up a meeting to discuss how we may obtain this data from you on an ongoing basis. This would negate the need to submit an OIA request each quarter.

Yours faithfully,

Dr Adam Ward
