(25) Figures under 2,500 are subject to a high degree of sampling variation and should be used only as a guide to the situation.
(26) Data are negligible.

(28) Under 60 refers to cases where the benefit recipient and their partner are aged under 60.
1. The figures are based on a 1 per cent. sample and are therefore subject to a degree of sampling variation.
2. The data refer to households claiming housing benefit which may be a single person, a couple or a family. More than one benefit household can live in one property, for example two or more adults in a flat or house-share arrangement.
3. Figures are rounded to the nearest thousand.
4. Totals may not sum due to rounding.
5. Figures for any non-responding authorities have been estimated.
6. Figures exclude any Second Adult Rebate cases.
