Information is collected from councils with adult social services responsibilities (CASSRs). Data are not collected centrally at constituency level.

The following tables show the number of individuals in England aged 65 and over who received domiciliary or residential care funded wholly or in part by councils with adult social services responsibilities as at 31 March of each year.
