Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
I would like to request data describing the amount of Council Tax Benefit (in £) by every Lower Tier Local Authority in England, annually, for the financial years between 2002-2003 to 2012-13.
This will be used to adjust the the council tax requirement within the respective LA Revenue Outturn data. The estimation of the council tax requirement has changed since2013-2014, and the estimated amount of council tax benefit to be passed on to residents had been excluded whereas it was previously included. The figures will be used to make values after 2013-14 comparable with earlier years.
I would kindly request this data in a csv or excel format. The dataset will be used for the purposes of academic research.
