Flynn made this Official Information request to Ministry of Social Development

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Flynn to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Flynn

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 Sep 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.

Yours faithfully,

Flynn Owen

Tēnā koe Flynn Owen

Thank you for your email received 29 October 2021, under the Official Information Act 1982. Your request has been forwarded to the appropriate officials at National Office to respond. 

The Ministry is focussing its resources on supporting New Zealanders through COVID-19 by administering welfare support during this unprecedented time.  Resources within our business units, where information for OIA requests is drawn from, is limited or unavailable.  Staff have been redeployed to assist the frontline with the processing of welfare payments. As such, there may be a delay in you receiving a response from the Ministry.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time. 

Ngā manaakitanga,
