The report and tables include data on:
- cumulative number of households capped
- point-in-time number of households capped at each month since the cap was introduced
- number of households that were previously capped but have moved off the cap
Also included for the first time are experimental statistics on the point-in-time number of households that have had their Universal Credit capped.
