Out-of-work benefits statistics

The visualisation of out-of-work benefits statistics presents data we have previously collected and published about people aged 16 to 59 that were claiming out-of-work benefits at May 2011.

The information includes breakdowns for Jobseeker’s Allowance, Employment and Support Allowance / incapacity benefits and lone parents on income support.

Although quarterly data has been used, the Public Data Explorer interpolates data and produces a monthly animation. Exact figures appear on February, May, August and November of each year. You can download below the full sets of data used in the visualisation.

Proportions for 2011 quarters are calculated from 2010 mid-year population estimates.

Work Programme statistics

There are 2 visualisation maps for data we have collected about the Work Programme. These are:

  • referrals, attachments and job outcomes - monthly numbers that can be customised by age, ethnicity and payment group for the geographies of Great Britain, countries, regions, local authorities, contract package areas and contracts
  • cohort analysis - monthly information that tracks the proportion of each cohort achieving a job outcome following referral to the Work Programme (can be broken down by payment group for the geographies of Great Britain, countries, regions, local authorities, contract package areas and contracts)

You can download below the full sets of data used in the visualisations.
