These national statistics produced by DWP provide data on National Insurance number (NINo) allocations to adult overseas nationals entering the UK. A NINo is generally required by any overseas national looking to work or claim benefits or tax credits in the UK.

The latest national statistics on NINo allocations to adult overseas nationals entering the UK to December 2013 were released on 27 February 2014 according to the arrangements approved by the UK Statistics Authority. The latest release updates the statistics previously released on 28 November 2013.

These statistics were assessed by the Statistics Authority in January 2011 and designated as national statistics. More information about the assessment is available in the assessment of compliance with the code of practice for official statistics.

The latest data to December 2013 is available in our online tabulation tool Stat-Xplore. Visualisations of the data are also available.

A set of summary excel tables for NINo allocations to adult overseas nationals entering the UK are also available.

These statistics are part of the coherent cross-government release of migration statistics and are included in Migration statistics quarterly reports and Other migration indicators.

National statistics on NINo allocations to adult overseas nationals entering the UK are now released on a quarterly basis in line with the cross-government release of migration statistics. Official statistics on the nationality of DWP working age benefit claimants at point of NINo registration will be updated on an annual basis.
