Publication showing "a fifth of claimants delayed making a claim for Universal Credit "

The request was successful.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
In gov.uk's Press release "£10 million fund to help vulnerable people claim Universal Credit " it is stated:
"Figures show that a fifth of claimants delayed making a claim for Universal Credit, largely because they didn’t know how to make a claim or because they thought they would find a job quickly. "
Please could you point us to the source of these statistics
Thanks

Yours faithfully,

Glenys Harriman
