Appendix 5: Social Security Experience Panel further information and tables
The Scottish Government is becoming responsible for some of the benefits currently delivered by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).
As part of work to prepare for this change, Scottish Government set up the Social Security Experience Panels with people who have experience of one or more of the relevant benefits. More than 2,400 people registered as panel members when it was launched in 2017.
The survey was sent to 1950 panel members in July 2020, and received 109 responses (response rate of 6%).
Demographics of social security panel survey respondents:
|Long term health condition||80||73.4|
|Asian, Asian Scottish or Asian British||1||0.9|
