Benefits Statistics Summary Publication (National Statistics) - May 2021

Date published: 25 August 2021

The Benefits Statistics Summary is released quarterly in the last week of February, May, August and November.


Contrary to Principle T3, Practice T3.3 of the Code of Practice for Statistics (Access to statistics before their public release should be limited to those involved in the production of the statistics), the infographic and link belonging to this publication was available on the NISRA Facebook page on 24 August 2021 prior to its publication on the 25 August 2021. While the link to the publication page did not work (as the statistical release had not been published at that time), the infographic was released. The error was noticed immediately, and the post was deleted within two minutes.
