					Notes
     1 Figures relate to Great Britain, or British resident overseas, only, except for Over 75 TV
       Licences, which also cover Northern Ireland.

     2 Forecast figures are consistent with the Budget 2011 spending forecasts published by the
       Office for Budget Responsibility on 23rd March 2011, and available at:
       http://budgetresponsibility.independent.gov.uk/pubs/economic_and_fiscal_outlook_230320
       11.pdf

     3 Real terms have been calculated using Gross Domestic Product deflators updated after
       the March Budget Report on 23rd March 2011.

     4 Totals may not sum, due to rounding.

     5 Some figures for past years may have changed since previous publications owing to the
       incorporation of more up-to-date information.

     6 Where one benefit has been renamed or superseded by another, the most recent name for
       the benefit is shown, but the figures cover all relevant benefits, as follows: Bereavement
       Benefits include Widows' Benefits; Carer's Allowance includes Invalid Care Allowance

     7 RPI adjustment - following correction of an error in the RPI used to uprate benefits,
       compensating adjustments were made to the main contributory and non-income-related
       benefits, and to Supplementary Benefit in 1987/88.

     8 Figures for 1999/00 onwards are on a Resource Accounting and Budgeting basis. There
       may be differences between figures quoted in these tables and those quoted in
       Department for Work and Pensions Accounts.

     9 Figures exclude Asylum Seekers from April 1999, since when the National Asylum Support
       Service has reimbursed DWP for benefits paid to Asylum Seekers.

    10 Expenditure for 2010/11 reflects the latest benefit-by-benefit forecast outturn, and not the
       amounts voted by Parliament.

    11 Responsibility for War Pensions transferred to the Veterans Agency from 2002/03.

    12 Responsibility for Child Benefit, Guardians Allowance and Child's Special Allowance
       transferred to Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs from 2003/04.

    13 Responsibility for Rent Rebate expenditure transferred to DWP from 2004/05.

    14 Jobseeker's Allowance was introduced in October 1996.

    15 Pension Credit was introduced in October 2003.

    16 Employment and Support Allowance was introduced in October 2008.
