Aged 25-35 (inclusive)
South Lanarkshire unitary authority 1,520
Rutherglen and Hamilton West parliamentary constituency 630
Notes:

1. Caseload figures are rounded to the nearest ten;

2. Figures do not include people with entitlement where the payment has been suspended, for example if they are in hospital.

3. Constituencies used are for the Westminster Parliament of May 2010.

4. On 1 April 2009, the reorganisation of the local authorities of England created nine new unitary authorities (UA's) including South Lanarkshire.

5. Information is available on the number of housing benefit claimants in receipt of a passported benefit, such as income support, income-based jobseeker's allowance, income-based employment support allowance and pension credit (guaranteed credit). Disability living allowance is not a housing benefit passported benefit, therefore the number of DLA claimants also receiving housing benefit is not available.
