1. The information on numbers within households is based on data from the Family Resource Survey (FRS) for 2001–02.
2. The information on benefit receipt taken from the FRS is based on self-assessment and therefore may be subject to misreporting.
3. The estimates are based on sample counts that have been adjusted for non-response. These estimates are subject to sampling error and response bias.
