The Department publishes experimental statistics on benefit destinations of claimants receiving a benefit sanction which currently show information on the mean number of days spent on working age benefits in the 180 days following a sanction. These figures can be found on in our quarterly Benefit Sanction Statistics available at the following link:

Departmental statisticians are currently developing these statistics further to look at destinations into employment.
