Council Tax Benefit (CTB) was abolished in April 2013 and replaced by a system of localised support. In England, the Department for Communities and Local Government is now responsible for statistics. The Scottish and Welsh Governments have similar responsibility.

The available information relating to Council Tax Benefit up to February 2013 is shown in Table 10 of the publication available at:
