Census output area data on workless benefit claimants in 2014

Experimental official statistics prepared to help identify very small pockets of worklessness and explain the nature of worklessness.

We publish census output area data on workless benefit claims every quarter. Output areas are spatial areas that contain between 80 and 150 households.

Census output area data

The figures are rounded to values of 5 using a probabilistic method in line with DWP policy and to minimise the risk of individuals being identified. We have also used a controlled rounding technique to make sure the total is consistent with the sum of the values in related cells. Users should therefore be careful when interpreting the data.

The statistics have been checked for consistency with published national statistics at higher spatial levels. Breakdowns are available by census output area and benefit type. We have also published the relevant ward and local authority district codes.

Data are not released for Scotland as the smaller size of data zones means the rounding method would not produce useful results.
