Estimates of the take-up of the main income-related benefits by caseload and expenditure in Great Britain.
These experimental statistics provide estimates of take-up, by caseload and expenditure, of the following income-related benefits:
- Income Support
- income-related Employment and Support Allowance
- Pension Credit
- Housing Benefit (including Local Housing Allowance)
- Council Tax Benefit (to financial year 2009/10) – discontinued – last published in February 2012

They also provide the total and average amounts of benefit claimed and unclaimed for each these benefits.
