Notes:
1. Figures have been rounded to the nearest 10.
2. Totals may not sum due to rounding.
3. Some additional disclosure control has also been applied.
4. Figures are compiled using the broad categories for the main disabling conditions that would include stress or back pain. These categories will therefore include people who do not suffer from stress or back pain.
5. Totals show the number of people in receipt of an allowance, and exclude people with entitlement where the payment has been suspended, for example if they are in hospital.
