Notes: Figures prior to December 2001 are taken from the HL2 summary return. Figures from January 2002 onwards are provided by the electronic HL1 individual case returns. Some applications will have been from households that applied previously in the same year - the extent of repeat applications prior to 2002 is difficult to assess from existing data.
