During the period 1 April to 31 March 2008, 126,000 adults aged 18-64 with learning disabilities and 14,000 adults aged 65 and over with learning disabilities received a social care service funded either partly or wholly by their council with adult social services responsibilities (CASSRs) in England following a community care assessment.

Data on the number of people receiving social services funded either fully or partially by CASSR in England are collected and published by the NHS Information Centre for health and social care as part of the referrals, assessments and packages of care (RAP) return.
