Copies of the latest Quarterly Enquiries giving statistics for the Working Families Tax Credit (WFTC) and the Disabled Person's Tax Credit are in the Library. They contain estimates of the number of recipients in each region.

There is no single definition of what comprises full-time work. The table shows an analysis by hours worked of families in Yorkshire and The Humber receiving WFTC at August 2000.

Hours normally worked, per week, by main earner Recipients
16<20 26.3
20<24 15.7
24<30 10.1
30<36 17.7
36<40 26.7
40 and over 30.1
All cases 126.6


Estimates based on a 5 per cent. sample of awards, and therefore subject to sampling error
