Detail

The Work and Pensions Longitudinal Study (WPLS) data are based on 100% of claimants and cover information such as age and gender of claimant, duration of their spell on benefit and geographical locations of claimants.

Breakdowns for individual benefits (for example the type of JSA in payment) are also available in 5% sample data which has more detail but less comprehensive coverage.

The documents on this page provide information regarding the differences between the WPLS data and 5% sample data by benefit type. They contain descriptions of the differences, and graphs that show a comparison of the two sets of data.
