Details

This statistical release includes data for England, Scotland and Wales.

The documents provide details about Jobseeker’s Allowance sanctions and Employment and Support Allowance sanctions decisions made to June 2013.

We have identified a data issue within the JSA sanction decision data, specifically to do with outcomes from appeals. While statisticians are investigating this issue we have temporarily withdrawn the ability within Stat-Xplore to cross-tabulate decision type by decision outcome. This is in line with normal practice for official statistics. We have also updated table 1.8 within the set of Excel tables on JSA and ESA sanctions: decisions made to June 2013 to reflect this temporary withdrawal.

Coverage: Great Britain.
