(1)Latest data are to February 2009. Notes: 1. Figures are rounded to the nearest 10 and displayed in thousands. 2. The year of entering job is the calendar year that the job was gained. 3. Westminster parliamentary constituency (post May 2005) is allocated using the ONS Postcode Directory and customer's postcode. 4. New Deal for Young People started January 1998. 5. New Deal for Lone Parents started October 1998. 6. New Deal 50+: 98,040 jobs were gained by individuals who had received employment credit up to March 2003. 7. New Deal for Partners: 1,860 jobs were gained by participants on New Deal for Partners up to March 2004. 8. Spells information is unavailable for New Deal 50+ and New Deal for Partners, so individual level information is given instead. 9. New Deal for Disabled People started in July 2001. Since the introduction of Provider-Led Pathways to Work, New Deal for Disabled People has been available only in Jobcentre Plus Pathways to Work districts. Phase 1 Provider-Led Pathways to Work was implemented in December 2007 and Phase 2 in April 2008. Provider-Led Pathways to Work covers 60 per cent. of the country. 10. Some individuals may have had more than one job start. 11. The row titled "Missing" are jobs gained, but a region was not entered against that record.

(1) The latest data for 2009 are up to August. Notes: 1. The figures are rounded to the nearest 10. 2. The Westminster parliamentary constituency (post May 2005) is allocated using the ONS Postcode Directory and customer's postcode. 3. The year of starting is the calendar year of starting New Deal. 4. Starters (spells) information is not available for New Deal 50 Plus or New Deal for Partners so Starters (individuals) data have been used instead for these schemes. This means that for these schemes only an individual's most recent spell on that New Deal is recorded. Source: DWP Information Directorate.

(1) Coefficients of Variation have been calculated as an indication of the quality of the estimates, see guide to quality as follows:
Guide to Quality:
The Coefficient of Variation (CV) indicates the quality of an estimate, the smaller the CV value the higher the quality. The true value is likely to lie within +/- twice the CV-for example, for an estimate of 200 with a CV of 5 per cent. we would expect the population total to be within the range 180-220.
Key Coefficient of Variation (CV) (%) Statistical Robustness
* 0 = CV< 5 Estimates are considered precise
** 5 = CV < 10 Estimates are considered reasonably precise
*** 10 = CV < 20 Estimates are considered acceptable
**** CV 20 Estimates are considered too unreliable for practical purposes

Notes:
1. Caseload figures are rounded to the nearest ten and percentages to one decimal place. Totals may not sum due to rounding.
2. Adults are classed as people aged 16 and over.
3. Caseload figures for Attendance Allowance, Carer's Allowance and Disability Living Allowance include those cases with entitlement but where payment is currently suspended (for example, because of an extended stay in hospital or an overlapping benefit).
4. The figures relating to Employment and Support Allowance have been thoroughly quality assured to National Statistics standard; however, it should be noted that this is a new benefit using a new data source which may not have reached steady state in terms of operational processing and retrospection. Therefore the working age client group figures (excluding Jobseeker's Allowance) for February 2009 are provisional.
5. Statistical Group is a hierarchical variable. A person who fits into more than one category will only appear in the top-most one for which they are eligible; for example, a claimant of Disability Living Allowance and Jobseeker's Allowance would appear in 'Jobseeker', not in 'Disabled'.
6. Data are published at:
http://83.244.183.180/100pc/stgp/cnage/ccstatgp/a_carate_r_cnage_c_ccstatgp_feb09.html
7. For a small number of claimants it is not possible to determine their age. For the purposes of this table it has been assumed that they are aged 30 years or over.
