Benefit Claimants per Quarter by 2001 Area Unit

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

The request was successful.

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 2001 Area Unit Boundary (i.e. at the Ministry's Service Centre catchment level):
- Jobseeker Benefit
- Soleparent Support benefit
- Supported Living Benefit
- Other benefits (group up of small benefits)
for each month / quarter from Sep17 on wards.

As per a previous request submitted just before Christmas (processed as job number IMSD-4920) I understand that for areas where the number of claimants is less than six this number would be suppressed in order to avoid confidentiality issues.

Furthermore, is there any way that I could obtain this data from you on an ongoing (quarterly?) basis.

Yours faithfully,

Dr Adam Ward
