Notes:
1. For May 1998 to May 1999 (inclusive), numbers are rounded to the nearest hundred.
2. For August 1999 to May 2006 (inclusive), numbers are rounded to the nearest ten.
3. Totals may not sum due to rounding.
4. Incapacity benefit claimants include those getting incapacity benefit credits-only.
5. No new claims for severe disablement allowance have been accepted since 6 April 2001. However, some claims have to be rebuilt on the IT system, which leads to a new “start” date being created and results in these claims appearing to have shorter durations.
