Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

In 2019, 2020 and 2021 you very kindly provided me with information regarding PIP claimants at 30th April for these years who had psychiatric disorders as their main disabling condition and their scores in the ninth daily living activity “Engaging with other people face to face” (e.g. FOI2020 23763).

In order to provide a baseline for the increase in the award of the descriptors in this area it would be extremely helpful if you could also provide me similar statistics for years 2018 and 2017. If this does not prove to be too costly an exercise in time taken it would also be helpful if the same statistics could also be provided for 2015.

Consequently, I request:

Details of the numbers of clients on the Personal Independence Payment caseload with recognised psychiatric disorders who were awarded descriptors 9b, 9c or 9d as of 30th April 2017, 2018 and (if possible 2015) plus the numbers who were not awarded a descriptor under activity area 9 (i.e. awarded 9a). Please break this down by the numbers satisfying the individual descriptors (i.e. 9b, 9c and 9d separately)

Please also breakdown the information by the standard second-tier reporting criteria
i.e. 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
