DLA for under 16s broken down by child benifit payments

Joe made this Freedom of Information request to Department for Work and Pensions

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was successful.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

For ongoing research, I would like to request the number of people receiving Disability Living Allowance on behalf of an under-16 year old. I would like this information broken down by the overall amount of child benefit claimed by the person.

For clarification - I am researching the number of siblings of disabled children - and so the breakdown is the part that I am particularly interested in.

I would expect the answer to be of the form, (using example figures)

10,000 recipients of DLA are claiming child benefit for one child.
8,000 recipients of DLA are claiming child benefit for two children.
11,000 recipients of DLA are claiming child benefit for three children.
...and so on. (In the example above I would thus expect that there were at least 30,000 siblings of disabled children (8,000 + 2*11,000) )

Yours faithfully,

Joe

Dr Joseph Reddington
