Universal Credit Claimants at Ward Level.

Universal Credit Prevalence

Percentage of working population claiming Universal Credit in England, Wales & Scotland as of 1st August 2020. As Universal Credit is not fully rolled out values should be viewed as indicative. The total number of claimants for all unemployment and low-income based benefits can be found in our FREE data download.

In light of the volatile job market and surge in universal credit claimants caused by COVID-19, we have put together various tables from our stats product to showcase changes in the number of people claiming unemployment and low income-based benefits.

This data Includes monthly claimant data at ward level from May 2018 for the following benefits in England, Scotland and Wales:

Also:

  • Total Claimants column which combines the claimants from all included benefits. This allows you to make a true comparison of how the number of people claiming unemployment-based benefits changes over time.
  • Working population column for each ward (age 18-67). Allows proportional comparison between wards.
  • Join with our ward polygon data to create your own maps.

Universal Credit is now the most widely used unemployment/low-income based benefit. It has been gradually rolled out since April 2013 and is set to replace all other listed benefits with a deadline to switch by 2024.

For ESA, JSA and Income Support, we have converted our quarterly data into monthly by backfilling the previous 3 months with the quarterly value divided by 3.

The graph on the right shows the number of universal credit claimants by month since May 2018. The steady rise in claimants in the last 2 years can be accredited to other benefit claimants switching to universal credit. The surge in April however, is mainly due to a rise in claimants as result of COVID restrictions.
