These statistical reports provide estimates of fraud and error for benefits administered by the DWP and local authorities.
Reports are published twice a year:
- preliminary estimates are published in May or June
- final estimates are published in November or December
The preliminary estimates published in May or June also feature in the DWP annual report and accounts each year when they get published.
Accompanying each estimate report, we also publish data tables that provide the user with detailed estimates by different types of fraud and error.
Statistical reports for the periods from 2006 to 2010 can be found in the National Archive.
