These monthly experimental statistics include the total number of people:
who have made a claim for Universal Credit to 14 March 2019
who have made a claim and have attended an initial interview, accepted their Claimant Commitment, and gone on to start Universal Credit up to 14 March 2019
There was a revision to the number of people on Universal Credit for the period January 2016 to December 2018. Data on durations of time spent by individuals on Universal Credit has also now been restored. Other measures are not affected. Further information can be found in the Universal Credit statistical notice.
We are making changes to the Universal Credit statistics to make them better for users.
The statistical bulletin (in PDF format) will be published every quarter, in line with the release that includes data on:
claims and starts to Universal Credit
Data for people on Universal Credit will still be available in Stat-Xplore and ODS tables on a monthly basis. The next PDF bulletin will be published on 14 May 2019.
