The latest available data on the outcome of the initial decision on each disability living allowance reassessment to personal independence payment (PIP) can be found in table 8B of the statistical tables released in December 2016 here: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/576641/pip-official-statistics-dla-to-pip-reassessment-outcomes-october-2016.ods

The information requested for cases following a mandatory reconsideration or an appeal is not readily available and to provide it would incur disproportionate cost.
