Definitions and data sources

There is no direct data on the location of low income people within Northern Ireland.  In this context, this indicator looks at the location of people who are reliant on the state for their income.

The first graph and map show, for February 2009, how the proportion of working-age people in receipt of one or more 'key out-of-work benefits' varies by local authority.  'Key out-of-work benefit' covers the following benefits: Jobseeker's Allowance, Income Support, Incapacity Benefit and Severe Disablement Allowance.

The data source for the first graph and map is the Department for Social Development (the data is not publicly available).

The second graph and map show, for February 2009, how the proportion of people aged 60 and over in receipt of the guaranteed part of Pension Credit varies by local authority.

The data source for the second graph and map is the quarterly Department for Social Development Pension Credit statistics.
