New Deal statistics

The article reports on the publication of New Deal statistics by the British Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) following the recommendations of the Modernising DWP Statistics project in 2005. The way the New Deal statistics is published is also changing. Improvements to the statistics arose when DWP gained access to Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs data through the Work and Pensions Longitudinal Study. The DWP Web site featured a Tabulation Tool which has been developed to modernise the way DWP statistics is released.
