Footnotes:

1.  Authorities which budget to spend less than their PSS SSAs appear with a negative sign.

2.  Expenditure by shire districts has been added to the parent county, eg 1998-99 budget figures for Bedfordshire £52.655 million consisting of parent county expenditure figure of £52.545 million plus £0.110 million for districts.

3.  These shire counties were reorganised on 1 April 1998. Figures for the two years are not comparable.

4.  Worcestershire came into being on 1 April 1998, previously Worcestershire was served by Hereford and Worcester County Council.

5.  These Shire Unitary Authorities came into existence on 1 April 1998.





5.3  Variations between authorities in unit costs

Could the Department set out in a table how the unit costs of the main social services for children and adults have changed over time? Could the Department quantify the degree of variation in these unit costs between authorities? Could the Department provide a commentary on these figures?

  1.  The unit cost figures in table 5.3.1 show in cash and real terms (deflated by GDP at 1997-98 prices) the increases in selected unit costs for personal social services from 1993-94 to 1997-98. The unit costs cover residential and nursing care for older people who are financially supported by the local authorities, hourly costs for home support services, and costs for placements of children looked after with foster parents or in local authority maintained children's homes.
