HBAI data on Stat-Xplore
UK-level HBAI data is available from 1994/95 to 2017/18 on the Stat-Xplore online tool. You can use Stat-Xplore to create your own HBAI analysis.
Note that regional and ethnicity analysis are not available on the database because multiple-year averages cannot currently be produced. These are available in the HBAI tables.
HBAI information is available at:
- an individual level
- a family level (benefit unit level)
- a household level
Read the user guide to HBAI data on Stat-Xplore.
