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 Mar 2022.

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
