Benefit fact sheets - March 2017

The Benefit Fact Sheets provide a high-level view of trends in benefit receipt. The Benefit Fact Sheets provide breakdowns of overall numbers, where appropriate, by recipient demographics (eg gender, ethnicity, age group, continuous duration of benefit) and location (ie Work and Income region and service centre, regional council, and territorial authority).
