Notes:

1. All figures supplied have been rounded to protect the confidentiality of claimants.

2. All data represent a snapshot in time of claimants on the computer system, and will therefore exclude a very small number of cases that are held clerically.

3. Areas have been defined by matching claimants’ postcodes recorded on the computer systems to the look-up list provided. Any claimants with missing, partial or incorrect postcodes may be excluded.

4. Ward level data are not available prior to August 1999.
