Child Support Agency: quarterly summary statistics

Statistics on the Child Support Agency's 1993 and 2003 statutory child maintenance schemes.

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is responsible for the child maintenance system in Great Britain. It funds information and support for separating parents and runs the statutory child maintenance schemes, currently operated through the Child Support Agency (CSA).

There is contact information and more about DWP statistics on the Statistics at DWP page.

Quarterly summary statistics

These publications cover the 1993 and 2003 statutory child maintenance schemes.

We release them approximately 6 weeks after the end of the period the statistics relate to allow for receipt of the data needed, and for full quality assurance to be carried out.

Our publication timetable can be found in the Statistics release calendar.

Policies and methodology

In December 2013 some of the methodologies used to produce the CSA QSS changed.

As a result, data included in the CSA QSS published in December 2013 and beyond is not comparable to data included in previous releases.

We’ve published details of our policies and methodology related to the CSA QSS for pre-December 2013 and post December 2013 separately below.

Consultations on changes to these statistics

We ran a consultation on proposed changes to methodology and a response to this was published on 19 September 2013.

An earlier consultation was published in 2009. This is available on the National Archive.
