More information

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 comes from statistical reports. It may differ from previously published figures because these tables provide estimates for financial years, rather than point-in-time figures.

Some historical data may differ from that previously published where:

  • new information has become available
  • methods for estimating expenditure have been improved

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