Change to descriptors in Activity area 9 since 2019

The request was successful.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

Last August you very kindly provided me with information regarding PIP claimants at 30th April 2019 with psychiatric disorders as their main disabling condition and their scores in the ninth daily living activity “Engaging with other people face to face” (Ref: FOI2019/27062).

For the purpose of comparison, I would be grateful if you could repeat the exercise in respect of PIP claimants as at 30th April 2020
i.e. <<details of the numbers of clients on the Personal Independence Payment caseload with recognised psychiatric disorders who were awarded descriptors 9b, 9c or 9d at the last date for which this information is available plus the numbers who were not awarded a descriptor under activity area 9 (i.e. awarded 9a). If the information is available please break this down by the numbers satisfying the individual descriptors (i.e. 9b, 9c and 9d separately)

Please Breakdown the information by the standard second-tier reporting criteria (Personality disorder, Specific learning disorder, Stress reactions, Anxiety disorders, Obsessive-compulsive disorder, Mixed anxiety and depressive disorders, Somatoform and dissociative disorders, Mood disorders, Psychotic disorders, Cognitive disorders, Eating disorders, Substance (mis) use disorders, Factitious disorder, global Learning disability, Autistic spectrum disorders, Hyperkinetic disorder, Conduct disorder (including oppositional defiant disorder), Enuresis, Faecal soiling (encopresis), Other psychiatric disorders of childhood)” >>

Thank you for your consideration of this matter

Yours faithfully,

Mike Robinson
