Notes: 1. Data are taken from the five per cent. extract of the Pension Service Computer System as at September 2005, and the figures are subject to a degree of sampling variation. They are also adjusted to be consistent with the overall case load from the Work and Pension Longitudinal Study. 2. The figures are rounded to the nearest 100. 3. The boundaries of parliamentary constituencies do not correspond exactly to Government office regions (GOR). As a result, small areas of some parliamentary constituencies listed lie outside the geographical boundaries of East Midlands GOR. Source:Department for Work and Pensions, Information Directorate.
