Testing the principle of pulling benefits data straight from ONS

The data on this page is being taken live from NOMIS (the Office for National Statistics' data portal for data relating to work, benefits, and the Census). This proof of concept uses the experimental dataset, Claimant Count, which shows the percentage of the working age population of each area who are claiming benefits related to being out of work. Choose a ward and hit the button to see the data.

As with other pages that we are developing, we'll test this for a bit, develop it further, and then push into our area profiles (all being well). Any feedback, suggestions, or requests, please contact us via email, twitter, or the form at the bottom of the page.
