Claimant Count Revisions
Claimant Count revisions
The Claimant Count figures published on 16 March 2016 include revisions to the back series to May 2013, resulting from improved estimates of out of work Universal Credit claimants from the Department for Work and Pensions. The Claimant Count estimates continue to be designated as Experimental Statistics. Further revisions to the series are likely as work to improve the Claimant Count series continues.
