Description

This dataset contains a count of individuals receiving Attendance Allowance and is based on data extracted from the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) Administrative Computer System, which is in turn derived from the Work and Pensions Longitudinal Study (WPLS). The WPLS is based on 100% of claimants and is not subject to any sampling error.

Breakdowns are also available by age and gender. Note that not all disaggregations listed above are available for all geographies. Attendance Allowance (AA) is a tax free, non-contributory, non-means-tested contribution towards the disability-related extra cost of severely disabled people. AA is only available for people aged 65 and over. It can be awarded for a fixed or and indefinite period. In order to qualify for receipt of AA people must have needed help with personal care for at least 6 months. The allowance is paid at two rates: higher rate - for those who need help with personal care throughout the day and during the night; and lower rate - for those who need help with personal care throughout the day or during the night. Terminally ill people automatically qualify for the higher rate and do not have to satisfy the qualifying period. The figures include those who have had their payment suspended, for example, if they are in hospital. For more detailed and up-to-date eligibility conditions and rules for claiming AA see DWP Website.

The DWPs Work and Pensions Longitudinal Study (WPLS). Data is based on 100% of claimants.

Details
Confidentiality Policy

Every effort has been made by the DWP to ensure that data do not allow the disclosure of confidential information and all counts have been adjusted using a variant of controlled rounding to base 5. Any counts that are shown as zero may not be a real zero.

Quality Management

Accuracy and Reliability

Based on 100% WPLS data, which is not subject to any sampling error. DWP have adjusted counts using a variant of controlled rounding base 5, therefore, counts shown as zero may not be a real zero. Values shown here for Community Regeneration CPP and Community Regeneration Local areas are based on aggregated data zone level data; as the data zone level data is rounded this will affect the quality of the data, so when making comparisons across categories, or over time, this should be taken into account.

Coherence and Comparability

Time series comparisons are suitable. As the data zone level data is rounded this will affect the quality of the data, so when making comparisons across categories, or over time, this should be taken into account. The sum of breakdowns may not equal the total due to rounding.
