Income Support Lone Parent demographics and lone parent employment rates

The ISLP caseload split by demographics and with employment rates for sub-groups.



The 2013 Spending Round described alterations to support received by Lone Parents in receipt of Income Support (ISLP). This ad-hoc splits the ISLP caseload by demographics using administrative data from the Work and Pensions Longitudinal Study (November 2012) and presents employment rates for subgroups of all lone parents from the Office of National Statistics’ Labour Force Household survey (Q4 2012), to inform future policy design and allow assessment of proposals to alter support.
