The latest available data on the number of successful or unsuccessful claims to Personal Independence Payment (PIP) by claimants previously in receipt of Disability Living Allowance (DLA) are available from the data tables accompanying the latest statistical release and published on Gov.UK: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/personal-independence-payment-april-2013-to-october-2014.

The Department intends to provide more detailed breakdowns of DLA to PIP reassessment outcomes in due course. The Department is working to guidelines set by the UK Statistics Authority to ensure we are able to publish statistics that meet high quality standards at the earliest opportunity.
