The information is in the table.
|As at February:||Number in receipt of disability living allowance|
1.Figures taken from a 5 per cent. sample as at the end of February for each year.
2.Figures are rounded to the nearest 100.
3.From November 2002, the methodology for producing these figures was changed to allow statistics to be published much sooner. This has resulted in a small increase in the reported caseload. This is because some cases which have actually terminated but have not yet been updated on the computer system are now included.
4.Only cases in payment have been included.
