1. Age is at commencement of case. Figures may include a small number of under 16s.

2. Includes those who are retired, supported by family, caring for home/family or long-term sick/disabled.

3. Includes cases where the employment status is not known.

4. Figures for 2015-16 and 2016-17 have been amended from those originally published last year. This is due to the erroneous exclusion last year of revised figures for South Ayrshire for 2016-17 and the receipt of updated information for Angus for 2015-16 and 2016-17.
