A statistical report providing figures on caseloads, enforcement, appeals, collections and outstanding arrears.
These publications contain national statistics on child maintenance schemes operated through the Child Support Agency (CSA) up to June 2013.
DWP is responsible for the child maintenance system in Great Britain. We fund information and support for separating parents and run the statutory child maintenance schemes, currently operated through the CSA.
DWP assumed responsibility for the CSA from the Child Maintenance and Enforcement Commission on 1 August 2012, following an announcement on 14 October 2010 that the Commission would become an executive agency of DWP as part of the Public Bodies Reform. The Commission had responsibility for the CSA between the 1 November 2008 and 31 July 2012, prior to that DWP had responsibility for the CSA.
Changes to June 2013 publication
During quality assurance checks of the June 2013 CSA quarterly summary statistics published on the 28 August 2013, there was a potential issue identified with arrears distribution figures. Investigations into the issue are now complete and the regional tables affected have now been reissued.
‘Table 9: Arrears Distribution’ will remain as of March 2013. The latest figures are now available in the September 2013 CSA quarterly summary statistics.
