Detail

This page contains historic and forecast benefit expenditure and caseload data for people receiving benefits, consistent with the Budget and Autumn Statement 2013.

Historic figures have been collated from departmental reports and accounts of DWP and its predecessor departments, and make use of statistical data collected from DWP’s benefit administration systems where necessary to provide further disaggregation.

Historic expenditure figures may differ from those published in the accounts due to differing definitions and the inclusion of data that has become available since. Historic caseload data also comes from statistical reports, although may differ from published figures because these tables provide estimates for financial years, rather than point-in-time figures. Some historical information will differ from that previously published on these pages where either:

  • new information has become available
  • methods for breaking down expenditure have been improved.

Forecasts published here are consistent with the 2013 Economic and Fiscal Outlook for Autumn Statement or Budget unless specified otherwise. They are produced under the terms of the Memorandum of Understanding with the Office for Budget Responsibility.

From 2013, a welfare spending table containing benefit and tax credit expenditure for DWP, HM Revenue and Customs and predecessors is included, covering Great Britain.

Forecasts have been produced using a number of techniques appropriate to the particular benefits, taking into account demographic, economic, social and policy factors.
