These monthly experimental statistics include the total number of people:
- who have made a claim for Universal Credit to 8 November 2018
- who have made a claim and have attended an initial interview, accepted their claimant commitment, and gone on to start Universal Credit up to 8 November 2018
- who are on Universal Credit at 8 November 2018
The statistics are broken down by:
- Jobcentre Plus office

DWP is currently investigating a discrepancy with the data on duration on Universal Credit. While we assess the scale of this issue we have removed this breakdown from Stat-Xplore. Caution should be used when viewing this breakdown via other mechanisms (such as supplementary tables).
