DWP benefits - working age group discontinued
24 August 2017
The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) are changing the way that they publish benefit statistics from August 2017.
The quarterly statistical summary published on the DWP website on 16 August 2017 includes a new set of experimental Official Statistics on benefit combinations. Statistics will show the total number of individuals claiming a benefit and the combinations of benefits claimed.
The existing DWP working age client group datasets will no longer be produced by DWP and will no longer be updated. Therefore the data tables on info4St.Helens will not be updated. The last period of data for these datasets is the November 2016 data published in May 2017.
