Written answers (Question to Social)

Information relating to a claimant’s address is not currently coded to the geographical location of the address. As such it is not possible to accurately report numbers of people on the live register living in a particular area at present.

However, I am informed that at the end of October there were 117,646 recipients of Disability Allowance of which 28,978 were resident in County Dublin.
