This dataset contains a count of all people claiming Employment Support Allowance (ESA). Data shown here are derived from a 100% data source - the Work and Pensions Longitudinal Study (WPLS) - which is not subject to any sampling error. Breakdowns are available by benefit type, award rate, gender, duration, age, and reason for claiming. A very small number of claimants who have an unknown age/gender are included within the area total but excluded from the age/gender breakdowns as they pose a small disclosure risk.

This slice of multidimensional data is not a Linked Data resource in the database: it's a virtual resource (i.e. you can't query it by SPARQL). But does have a permanent unique URL which can be bookmarked.
