Expenditure on those in work for housing benefit and council tax benefit is not available prior to 2008-09 and information is not available at local authority level for statutory maternity pay or statutory sick pay.
The information for housing benefit and council tax benefit excludes any passported recipients and is based on a combination of quarterly statistical data and local authority subsidy returns, as outturn expenditure data are not available at this level. For 2008-09, November 2008 data have been used as this is the most representative dataset available during this period.
The information for statutory maternity pay and statutory sick pay is based on provisional employer returns to Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and is expenditure funded by the Department for Work and Pensions, some additional expenditure will be funded by the employer. These estimates may vary from the estimates published by the Government Actuary's Department (GAD) in their annual uprating report.
