Details

The publication provides detailed geographical counts, at Lower Super Output Area (LSOA) and Scottish Data Zone level, of the number of families and children in families in receipt of tax credits, for all years from 31 August 2005 onwards. It provides a breakdown by the type of tax credits received, as well as whether the family was benefiting from help with their childcare costs and the National Indicator 118 estimate.

Introductory note

The tables in this release show the number of families benefiting from Child Tax Credit (CTC) and Working Tax Credit (WTC) in each LSOA or Data Zone and the number of children in these families. The tables include out of work families with children who receive the same level of support as provided by CTC, but where it is paid as child allowances in Income Support or income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (IS/JSA).

CTC and WTC are awards for tax years, but the entitlement level can vary over the year as families’ circumstances change. These tables are based on families’ entitlements at 31 August 2014, given the family size, hours worked, childcare costs and disabilities at that date, and their latest reported incomes. This date was selected because it is the reference date for published Child Benefit statistics - including, for England and Wales, at LSOA level and for Scotland at Data Zone level.

This data and similar geographical statistics, down to Lower-layer Super Output Area (LSOA) in England and Wales, Data Zones in Scotland and Output Areas in Northern Ireland, may also be available from the following sites:
