Child Benefit: small area data

These statistics provide detailed annual geographical estimates, at Lower Super Output Area and Data Zone, of the number of families and children claiming Child Benefit in respect of the 31 August of the year of analysis.

These tables are based on families in receipt of Child Benefit as at 31 August and are consistent with the higher level geographical statistics. This date was selected because it is the reference date for published tax credit statistics - including, for England and Wales, at LSOA level and for Scotland at Data Zone level.

Further statistics are available in the Child benefit: Geographical statistics series.

Older statistics are available from the National Archives at: Child Benefit: small area data
