This map was created by Detail Data using information supplied by the Department for Social Development under Freedom of Information. It shows how many Carer's Allowance claimants there are in each postcode area. The map also reveals a breakdown by age, gender and how many claimants are receiving a payment for caring and how many are on the administrative system but receive Â£0 - predominantly because they are in receipt of a state pension.
If you click on the grey carers tab you can change the information the map portrays to show a breakdown by gender, age and those in receipt or not in receipt of Carer's Allowance. Also click on the pins to receive a more detailed breakdown for each area. The data relates to May 2015.
Totals may not sum due to rounding. The figures only relate to carers known to DSD.
