The benefits statistics summary is a high level summary of the latest National Statistics on Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) benefits.

Published on this page is the first release of Bereavement Support Payment experimental statistics, showing data to December 2017.

Also published on this page is the last release of Income Support lone parents by ethnicity statistics, showing data to November 2017.

You can find Attendance Allowance (and other DWP benefits and programmes) datasets in Stat-Xplore, an online tool that allows you to create your own customised tables and charts.

Read the DWP benefit statistics collection page for more information.

We will be making improvements to the geography information in our statistical releases in the second half of 2018. Read the DWP statistical geographies note for more information.

DWP is currently investigating a discrepancy with the medical condition and International Classification of Diseases (ICD) codes for:

  • Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
  • Incapacity Benefit (IB)
  • Severe Disablement Allowance (SDA)

We’ve removed this breakdown from Stat-Xplore, while the scale of this issue is assessed.

Please use caution when viewing this breakdown in other publications (such as NOMIS and supplementary data tables). We’ll publish further updates about this issue on this page.

  1. Removed 2 ODS files from the page: 'Attendance Allowance caseload statistics to November 2017' and 'Attendance Allowance (all entitled cases) caseload statistics to November 2017'. These statistics were temporarily published in an ODS format due to a delay in the processing of Attendance Allowance data. The data is now available in Stat-Xplore instead, an online tool that allows you to create your own customised tables and charts.
  2. Added the following data tables: Attendance Allowance caseload statistics, Attendance Allowance (all entitled cases) caseload statistics, Bereavement Support Payment statistics, Income Support lone parents by ethnicity statistics, Jobseeker's Allowance average weekly amount of benefit statistics and State Pension caseload statistics (5% sample).
  3. Removed tabs containing International Classification of Diseases (ICD) code breakdowns from the Employment and Support Allowance caseload statistics. This is due to a discrepancy which is under investigation.
  4. Added a note stating that DWP is investigating a discrepancy with the medical condition/International Classification of Diseases (ICD) codes for Employment and Support Allowance, Incapacity Benefit and Severe Disablement Allowance.
  5. Updated the Attendance Allowance (all entitled cases) caseload statistics, contained in 'Quarterly benefits summary: February 2018 (supporting data tables)', to show next publication date as May 2018.
  6. First published.
