Benefit Fact Sheets - March 2020

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 (e.g. gender, ethnicity, age group, continuous duration of benefit) and location (i.e. Work and Income Region and Service Centre, Regional Council, and Territorial Authority).

During the COVID-19 pandemic response situation, we are releasing a reduced amount of supporting material for the Benefit Fact Sheets. New weekly and monthly COVID-19 reporting and data are available.

Below you can find the data tables for the March 2020 quarter, which are in a machine readable format, XLSX spreadsheets, and HTML links to the Benefit Fact Sheets homepage.

The next Benefit Fact Sheets release is for the June 2020 quarter, and will be published on 16 July 2020.
